Maturity stage TRL 9 / CRI 5-6 - Market competition driving widespread deployment &/"Bankable" grade asset class

Although pollution and lack of biodiversity constitute operational, reputational, environmental and financial risks for many sectors it remains difficult for many actors to take improvement actions amongst others due to a lack of metrics. The BeeOmonitoring combines nature (bees acting as drones to collect billions of environmental samples on large surfaces) and technology (software processing the data). Through the analysis of the samples, BeeOdiversity can identify, find the origin and assess the level of pollutants (heavy metals, 523 pesticides, nitrates, PAH, dioxins, etc.) and assess plant diversity level and quality. The BeeOmonitoring enables to (i) monitor industrial and agricultural pollution, (ii) assess the quality/diversity of plants, (iii) take targeted improvement decisions and (iv) implement adapted actions to enhance biodiversity. No other method can monitor so many pollutants and provide biodiversity metrics (on-site) as efficiently.

The Environmental Benefits

  • The BeeOmonitoring monitors plant biodiversity on a surface of 700ha via +50,000 bees collecting samples on a daily basis (+230 to 360 days) representing billions of samples per year
  • The BeeOmonitoring monitors +500 pesticides (5 times more than compulsory water monitoring in most countries) and +200 other pollutants (heavy metals, dioxins, furans, PCBs, etc) on 700ha
  • The BeeOmonitoring identifies yearly up to 800 plant species, 6,000 pollutant molecules, 120 pesticides
  • Increase of plant diversity by x3 to x4 and less than 5% bee colony decline (vs+20% on average)
  • Decrease of number and concentration of pesticides and other pollutants up to more than x3
  • 700 ha covered per site and a total of 150 kha covered in more than 15 countries

The Financial Benefits

  • Reduce risks worth hundreds of thousands or millions of euros (e.g. water treatment costs or water catchment closure, air quality issues, soil or food contamination, lack of pollinators, permit, etc)
  • 2 to +10 times cheaper than traditional methods such as ecological surveys or pollution sensors to monitor 700ha; yearly payback with direct and indirect benefits
  • Increase yield of crop production by 10 to 30% & reduces costs of pesticides use
