Koen De Koster and Filip Willocx are the founders of BioOrg. Since 2009, they have been pioneering the use of 'blue biotechnology' in building and industrial environments.
Together with universities and research institutes from home and abroad, they investigate the influence of benign micro-organisms in installing and maintaining the biodynamic balance. Since then, BioOrg has ensured the protection of its technology through several Belgian and International patents and patent applications.
"BioOrg focuses on man in his environment. For this, we believe in enhancing the natural balance between man and his environment," says Koen De Koster, founder and driving force behind BioOrg. "BioOrg works only with positive organisms and without harsh chemicals. By doing this, we prevent the poisoning of our indoor environment and degradation of our outdoor environment."
Filip Willocx: "The influence of the invisible life surrounding us is incredibly strong. Organisms make us who we are, they help determine our behaviour, our health and our well-being. That's why the presence of the right organisms in our buildings and installations is vital."
"Safety and air quality are crucial factors for the employees in our building. With BioOrg, we have managed to eliminate disinfectants from all our HVAC systems."
Dr Roland Vermeiren, Head of Medical Services, Eurocontrol Brussels
"By using BioOrg in our sanitary installations, we can keep odours completely under control. With thousands of passengers passing through every day, this is a major achievement."
Mr Marc Van Horenbeeck, Building Infrastructure/Cleaning Manager, Brussels Airport Company
Thanks to the BioBalance Management System, all the biological and chemical risks involved in the maintenance of our building were mapped out and effective control measures were prepared and implemented. Now we can be genuinely assured of a healthy indoor environment."

"For us, it is important that our guests feel good both in terms of comfort and hygiene. This is why we strive for a perfect living environment in our hotel. BioOrg helps us achieve this."
Ms Marieke Höfte, owner of Hotel & Complex Stayen, Sint-Truiden
"By maintaining a positive microbial community of Tectobiotics in our process water, we have fewer odour issues and less mucous formation; and for this we do not need to use any chemical doses. "
