A start-up Biocure was established by Soso Tsabadze and Temo Rukhadze. The company offers a new ecological method of oil pollution cleaning. According to the founders, the method is efficient and cost-effective.
It took the entrepreneur one year to study the ecology and the business development opportunities. One more year was spent on business model development.
“The idea is that the purest way to clean the ecology is natural degradation, i.e. the oil-eating bacteria multiply in the most polluted ground and neutralize the toxins during decades.”
The technology has been in use in Georgia for several years. The businessman was concerned about the millions of dollars spent in Gulf of Mexico to clean the water by chemicals after the catastrophe of oil spill while there was the cheapest way to clean the gulf by bacteria.
The entrepreneurs clarified that they can speed-up the cleaning process using their technology implemented directly in the polluted place (in-situ).
