Faircap Mini / Growduce / Nautile

FAIRCAP MINI is an efficient, transportable and low-cost filtration system designed primarily for people in developing countries who do not have access to drinking water. Faircap Mini is a cap that fits into any individual bottle. It is equipped with hollow fibre membrane technology and an activated carbon filter to filter almost all bacteria and chemical residues in the water. 


GROWDUCE - At the edge of a bio composter and a 3D printer, Growduce is a recycling and domestic biomanufacturing device. It intends to recycle our organic waste and transform it into everyday objects. To do so, Growduce employes biology as a technology as well as a process.  The first recipes and moulds imagined enable the user to locally transform his own bio-waste into a healing bandage, a beauty mask, gloves and other clothes, into new kinds of food or even into logs to heat the house.



Nautile is an electric and combustion kettle that is easy to use, efficient and has a reduced environmental impact. The shapes, materials, structure and internal mechanisms as well as the manufacturing process of this kettle have been inspired by nature in order to minimize its energy consumption, responsible for 80% of its environmental impact.
