Finding environmentally friendly innovative solutions to create higher quality of life.

Vision - mission - goal

About the company

IOS was established in December 2006 under the leadership of prof. dr. Aleksandra Lobnik. The goal and vision of merging science and economy led to cooperation of highly educated employees who began to walk a path of broadening knowledge in finding new innovative solutions in the field of environmental protection, sensors, nanomaterials and textiles. The path was imbued with many innovation and research projects in the national and international consortiums. Since the beginning of the Institute, we expanded our team, increased incomes and created our own research environment that offers even more space for development, and we are hoping to create our own productive line in near future. 4 modern laboratories are highly equipped and are in the same building as the seat of the company. We are also renting a productive hall where we have the reactors for creating secondary raw materials from waste textiles and plastic.

In last couple of years, the company is prioritizing creating final innovative products that were developing since the beginning of Institute’s birth.

The main focus of the company has not changed since it opened its doors in 2006: »Constant gaining and disposing of new knowledge and applicate it to the economy market«.
