The Ukrainian company BIOsens developed a mobile lab that quickly detects toxic compounds called mycotoxins in crops, right at the field, without the need to send samples to remote labs and wait several days for results.
Mycoses’ early detection of crop contamination will save significant resources for crop logistics, extraction, detoxification, and reprocessing. Also, this process reduces the emissions of CO2 and other environmental pollutants.
Under the Climate Innovation Vouchers grant, the company has hired a leading industrial design bureau and created two engineering prototypes that will soon be launching into production.
With the Voucher support, Biosens has also created a mobile application and complete technical documentation for small-scale production.
The company was listed on FoodTech`s TOP-500 rating and is now discussing pilot projects with a range of crop farmers and traders.
