This is Biosfera, the global hub for game changers in the private and public sector who can contribute to a clean and healthy planet, quality of life for everyone, now and for the generations to come, seeking ways to participate and make this happen. Together we can make our human ecosystems smart and give a voice to the natural ecosystems we all depend on.
Biosfera presents a revolutionary approach to generating environmental impact. We offer a whole new way of managing our planet: our cities, ecosystems and industries. Our methodology includes all of our productive and value chains, to reduce pollution and improve the quality of our ecosystems for our children and theirs. Whether you look for inspiration, cooperation or solutions, we hope our concepts and way of thinking will lead to new opportunities. We welcome you to exchange knowledge and to participate in one of our programs.
Biosfera refers to our biosphere. The Biosphere is the support system that enables all life on earth. The natural ecosystems that constitute the Biosphere are smart by nature, so that this life can thrive.
Biosfera Foundation creates collaborative platforms, consortia and programs, all geared towards dissemination, acceptance and social embedding of technologies related to what we call: ‘smart ecosystem engineering’. Doing so we generate conscious environmental, social and technological awareness in the public and private domain and encourage breakthroughs on environmental challenges.
A Business Model for Planet Earth
To preserve nature and the quality of life on earth, we are in need of a powerful mechanism that will upscale investments in ecosystems. Governments, NGO's and individuals need industries and other companies to work along on preservation and sustainability. We believe that remediating pollution and cleaning up waste add value to the ecosystem and should, therefore, be profitable. Our methodology is precisely designed to do so.
Smart Ecosystem Engineering (SEE)
The value of ecosystems needs to be quantified and redistributed, so that polluters can be held responsible, improvers are awarded and impact investors gain.
An example: Agricultural waste can be used in several ways: as biomass feedstock for industrial processing and as a feedstock for biopower. It can also be decomposed as semifinal products for industrial use, such as proteins, minerals, lipids, carbohydrates.Those are valuable compounds for the chemical, food and pharmaceutical industries, replacing petrochemical compounds. Other uses of this biomass are in construction materials, biofibre composites for industrial design (automotive, aviation etc.) and a plethora of other high added-value materials. This goes similarly for municipal solid waste and of course the treatment of waste water: the organic waste in waste water can be used for many re- and upcycle purposes, whereas the water can be reused in wide range of water products, significantly lowering the demand for supply water.
Ecosystems can be defined as a network of interdependent and interacting assets, services and actors that jointly generate, add, use, destroy and exchange value. Whether an ecosystem is natural, engineered, social or economic, a smart ecosystem puts its inherent intelligence and that of its actors to work using optimal methods and tools to monitor and manage its efficiency.
We tend to differentiate between a built environment and a natural environment – where in reality there is just one environment: the biosphere, our living environment that supports all life on earth. The natural ecosystems in the biosphere are smart, so that this life can thrive. But the artificial ecosystems created by humans are not necessarily in balance with the natural ones.
That is why BIOSFERA develops implementation frameworks that make human ecosystems smart. We call this Smart Ecosystem Engineering (SEE). SEE gives natural ecosystems a voice and a face so that they can participate in the distribution and the exchange of the value that they generate for us, for all life on earth and for the Biosphere as a whole.
SEE is a new approach for the development and dissemination of sustainable biobased, circular and creative economies, industries and societies.
TUPIX gives your ecosystem a voice. Natural and artificial ecosystems are all around us. Harmonising them benefits everybody. TUPIX allows you to manage your ecosystem with minimal effort and maximum control. The Smart Ecosystem Engineering (SEE) methodology and the ecosystem operating system TUPIX are a proprietary process and product of Biosfera.
What is TUPIX?
TUPIX is an efficient and ground-breaking solution that employs cutting-edge technologies to make ‘ecosystems smart’, through their automated optimisation at a low cost.
Ecosystems can be defined as a network of interdependent and interacting assets, services and actors that jointly generate, add, use, destroy and exchange value.
Whether an ecosystem is natural, engineered, social or economic, a smart ecosystem puts its inherent intelligence and that of its actors to work using optimal methods and tools to monitor and manage its efficiency.
In application, TUPIX is all about optimising your business and operational processes using specialised software and hardware. We provide a service by thoroughly analysing the business processes, locating areas that can be supported and automated and simulating the optimal state of efficiency. With a thorough evaluation of its efficiency, we provide the platform to coordinate all relevant stakeholders and assemble all the right tools for its application. All stakeholders involved in an ecosystem benefit from the added value of a more efficient and self-governing network.
