About the company

Inopsys, founded in 2015 is a scale-up operating in the circular economy. It started with the ‘Plant-On-A-Truck’ idea. Today the company specializes in mobile & modular side stream solutions for the chemical and pharmaceutical industry, to purify water or solvents, and recover valuable components. The focus is the removal of micropollutants and the recuperation of valuable compounds such as metals (Palladium, Platinum, Zinc, Vanadium, …), solvents, and clean water.

Through its R&D activities, Inopsys actively invests in research that brings sustainable solutions for emerging water-related challenges of the future while developing services for specific industrial customer issues. Inopsys is committed to making circular side stream solutions the new normal. Their ambition is to ensure that side streams are no longer seen as waste, but as a product that deserves new life. 

In its mission, Inopsys is supported by a group of strong shareholders investing in innovation and circular economy. Today, the team consists of 14 enthusiastic people led by the CEO, initiator from the very beginning. With some nice pilots and first successes, the team is ready for international expansion in pharma and fine chemical industry in Ireland, United Kingdom, The Netherlands, France, Germany, and Switzerland in a first step, but sees potential all over the world. Finding the right commercial M/F is key in making a next chapter in building Inopsys’ success story.
