Our start-up ecosystem
Currently, dormant stocks and surpluses represent an estimated value of 3 billion euros across Europe. Today, 90% of these stocks are destroyed, due to the lack of a simple and automated solution to, on the one hand, identify them, and on the other hand, qualify them. Reintegrating them into the economy offers a huge economic and environmental benefit, equivalent to 3.5 million tons of raw materials saved and 450 thousand tons of CO2 avoided.
Founded in 2018, kheoos is a Grenoble-based startup that renews the industry by minimizing its environmental impact, with the ambition of becoming the European leader in the reuse of parts for industrial maintenance. Incubated and co-founded by SATT Linksium, kheoos was a winner of the i-nov contest, is labelled“Solar Impulse Efficient Solutions” and won in 2022 the European circular economy award given by the European Institute of Technology (European Union). The startup is supported by Ademe, BPI, the Auvergne Rhône Alpes region and Minalogic. kheoos opened an office in Bratislava in 2020 to cover Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Hungary. kheoos brings together a team of 16 passionate about AI, maintenance, supply chain and digital.
Since its foundation in 2018, kheoos has devoted its efforts to developing a technology based on artificial intelligence. This technology allows to scan the stocks of maintenance parts in a few seconds, identifying each reference, enriching the databases and eliminating duplicates. This step of “matching”, which would take months to do manually, has the effect of making visible millions of dormant parts. Industrial buyers can then find and acquire them on the online marketplace.
In a context of increasing costs and industry’s willingness to improve its environmental footprint, kheoos offers a simple and operational solution to source quality parts with a reduced price and impact.
Who is the proposed solution for?
The solution has been tested and is used daily by more than 400 customers, including industrial leaders such as Michelin and EDF, as well as other major players in the automotive, energy and pharmaceutical sectors.
