VIB Bar.on

Start-up Bar.on, one of the newest tenants in BlueChem, recently raised 1.8 million euros to develop a new technology for producing planet-friendly beer in just a few seconds.

Every beer has a unique taste and its own story. Moreover, brewing beer is an ancient and traditional process that has become indispensable in today’s society. However, according to start-up Bar.on, the beer industry is at a turning point. In view of climate change and the emerging zero waste policy, the industry will also have to adapt. Bar.on has therefore joined forces with VIB (Flemish Institute for Biotechnology) to bring molecular brewing technology to the market. With the necessary technology, flavour cartridges and tap water, consumers can brew beer anytime, anywhere, including non-alcoholic beer.

Bar.on’s groundbreaking molecular mixing technology attracted the interest of investors, enabling the start-up to raise a starting capital of no less than 1.8 million euros.
