Bangalore: After detailed due diligence by Biomimicry Institute Montana, ECOSTP has moved to the final round in the global launchpad program – the only organization from Asia. Mimicking the four chambers of a cow’s stomach, ECOSTP uses micro-organisms, plants, and gravel to process up to 1 million liters of sewage per day, without using any energy or operators. The final seven biomimicry entrepreneurs will debut at Circularity 19 sustainability conference in Minneapolis in July 2019.

The Biomimicry Launchpad provides entrepreneurs and changemakers with the resources they need to launch and grow successful biomimicry businesses, accelerates the development and commercialization of biomimicry innovations, and helps create the next generation of sustainability entrepreneurs. Each year, Launchpad teams are eligible to compete for the $100,000 Ray of Hope Prize®, sponsored by the Ray C. Anderson Foundation, a $25,000 second prize, and additional cash prizes.

Commenting on the selection, Tharun Kumar, Co-founder ECOSTP, “Harmony with nature has remained our driving motto. We are delighted with this selection. The unique STP solution needs no power to operate and is the need of the hour.”

The Biomimicry Institute empowers people to create nature-inspired solutions for a healthy planet. Biomimicry is an approach to innovation that seeks sustainable solutions to human challenges by emulating nature’s time-tested patterns and strategies. The goal is to create products, processes, and policies – new ways of living – that are well-adapted to life on earth over the long haul.

ECOSTP Technologies Pvt. Ltd. is a collective of global wastewater consultants with deep expertise in sustainable solutions in sewage treatment. It has created a unique ‘Zero Power Zero Maintenance’ IOT sensor enabled sewage treatment product to disrupt the current model of using power hogging motors to treat the sewage. The product is a replica of a cow’s stomach based on bioengineering concept.
