ADEQUABIO, WHO ARE WE?

Adequabio is a team of passionate researcher. After more than 25 years of research into pollution treatment abilities of photosynthetic bacteria, the team decides to launch an entrepreneurial adventure to use the potential of these bacteria on a large scale.

We are
UNIQUE

Daniel Garcia, Camille Escoffier and their team have developed a unique consortium of bacteria able to decontaminate effluents (toxic liquid wastes), in particular crop protection products from agriculture.

We are
INNOVATIVE

Adequabio is a start-up which produces innovative products, as its first product on the market: Phytobarre. This system uses the unique consortium of photosynthetic bacteria that Adequabio team developped to treat phytosanitary effluents produced by agricultural treatments and operating tanks .

We are
RESPONSIBLE

Adequabio’s mission is to provide a solution to farmers’ problems by integrating the environment and the health of consumers into our motivations.

ADEQUABIO, THE TEAM

As often, Adequabio is the result of encounters. It is within the CEA Cadarache Cellular Bioenergetics Laboratory that Daniel GARCIA and Camille ESCOFFIER work together in studying photosynthetic bacteria. In 2004, their discoveries related to the depollution of chemical effluents are the subject of a patent. Then, between 2008 and 2013, Phytobarre is developed thanks to a European LIFE financement. In 2017, the team of researchers decides to share the results of their research with the agricultural world : Adequabio is born.

Daniel Garcia

Doctor in Biology and Microbiology, he is a researcher specialized in the study of photosynthetic bacteria at the CEA since the 1990s. He has participated in several applied research projects, national and international, including the European Life-Phytobarre project of which he was the coordinator . Expert at the Water division, he is the President of Adequabio.

Camille Escoffier

He graduated with a Master's Degree in Biotechnology. He first worked as a research scientist at Librophyt and then as a research engineer at the CEA, before joining the Life-Phytobarre project team as project manager in 2014. He is now CEO of Adequabio.

« Leaving our lands healthy is a collective issue that requires enormous efforts from farmers today to transform and adapt their processes. Our solution is intended to “relieve” the farmer. We want to offer the best tool possible with the simplest, most effective and least expensive implementation possible. »
Daniel GARCIA, PDG

ADEQUABIO, OUR PRODUCTS

The Phytobarre Revolution

A new generation treatement for phytosanitary effluents. The best way to treat phytosanitary effluents.

Tanks and vehicles pass through a washing station that collects polluted water, which is then
stored in ponds.
The water in the basins evaporates naturally and the remaining volume is treated by a selection of
bacteria grouped into a unique combination, resulting from more than 25 years of experience.
The results of the European LIFE-Phytobarre project between 2013 and 2017 showed that almost
100% of the active substances detected disappeared at the end of the season without any liquid
discharge into the environment
.

Phytobarre is the most

Effective.

Phytobarre is the only system on the market to use both evaporation and bacterial degradation in
liquid medium to treat phytosanitary effluents.

Scalable.

Our team of researchers is constantly working on optimizing the system.

Simple.

Phytobarre requires no maintenance or additional work. Just add a dose of Adequabio bacteria in the treatment tanks at the beginning of the season, that’s all!

Polyvalent.

The Phytobarre process adapts to all effluent volumes and treats all types of phytos. To meet the specific needs of each farm, our solution is completely tailor-made.
