WHO is iFLUX?
Smart groundwater management will determine the quality of life in our future. With this vision, iFLUX was founded in 2017 as an independent spin-off from VITO and the University of Antwerp.
iFLUX is a dynamic startup, active in environmental management. We help our customers solve complex groundwater issues, manage the integrity of their groundwater resources, and determine flow and direction in function of efficient groundwater management.
iFLUX developed a new and proven solution to determine the dynamics of groundwater flow and groundwater contamination. Based on the patented monitoring technology, combined with a specific data interpretation method, we are able to guarantee a more accurate and reliable image of underground water and contaminant fluxes.
Our office is located in the Science Park in Niel, where life-science entrepreneurs meet in an inspiring working environment.
