The water produced in the SPID system is an effective ecological disinfectant intended for various pathogens. It ensures safety for people and the environment. OWWO technology was developed by WOFIL and it is currently in the process of verification in the framework of the patent application.
    Since water management is an urgent problem we are facing globally, WOFIL’s work to reduce the amount of sewage and completely purify wastewater is particularly important.
    Usitoo, Belgium
     It is a Belgian cooperative which intends to "re-invent" renting to make it as attractive as e-commerce while making the consumers behaviour more sustainable. Founded in 2016, we have started operations in Brussels in March 2018, and have used this period to fine-tune our innovative circular e-rental model. We are circular with our functional economy (renting) solution that promotes Refuse and Reuse, while systematically Repairing everything we rent. In addition, our included delivery system optimises a unique delivery loop, reducing drastically CO2 and other pollutants in comparison to having all users to cross the city twice to grab their rental. We are circular a second time because 90% of our rental catalogue is provisioned through buying back from citizens the well-functioning objects that they do not use anymore, against free rentals (turning them into users of the solution at the same time).
