Software application for environmental impact assessment
Summary:
Serbian based company developed unique software for Environmental impact assessment. It is used by experts for broad variety of projects, for which it is legally mandatory (EU Directive). Software has a lot of advantages over a common practice; it facilitates and speeds up the work of experts, making it more systematic and controllable. It is the first fully specialized software for this purpose on the global market. Company seeks for partners for Joint Venture, Financial and License Agreement.
Description:
This micro company from Belgrade, Serbia creates software for environmental protection and provides solutions and consultancy services in environmental and chemical engineering. Company gathered a multidisciplinary team, experienced in environmental engineering, computer programming and business development, which is led by Belgrade University professor (PhD in chemical engineering). Company raised first round of investment through a very competitive grant program of Serbian Innovation Fund, which is funded by the EU Commission and controlled by the World Bank.
The first product company created is a unique software application (SaaS) for Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA), which is offered to the Serbian market in May 2015, with very good interest of first customers (EIA consultancy companies). The next step is to make a solid position in Serbia and to offer software to EU market. Environmental impact assessment is mandatory procedure in EU for many investment projects and the estimated overall market niche size is 1 billion EUR in EU (independent survey). With a current price level of the software, the overall market potential is around 100 million EUR in EU, where this software has a first mover advantage. Midterm ambition is to have a recognized product widely used in EU by experts.
Software has many advantages over common practice and it is the first fully specialized software for Environmental impact assessment. It contains a number of innovative elements, such as database and system for impact identification, a method for impact evaluation and tools for results visualization and analysis. Software also ´leads´ assessors through the whole procedure, offering professional help for inputs, and at the end it generates the reports that are submitted to competent authorities.
The next steps in the product development are improvements based on users´ feedback which may lead to addition of new features and integration of different tools, i.e. pollutants dispersion modelling and Geographic Information System (GIS), expert system for mitigation measures, etc. Further, product could be a starting point for new software development aimed to other specific environmental services and processes, such as Emissions trading system (ETS), Strategic environmental assessment (SEA), Integrated pollution, prevention and control (IPPC), etc. Thus, company´s long-term vision is to create a web-based platform for environmental protection services, which integrates different applications and tools and would significantly improve the work of environmental experts, on a global scale.
For reaching this ambition company is looking for partners within EU, within three categories. The first kinds are environmental service companies that are well established in the area of Environmental impact assessment (and Integrated pollution, prevention and control (IPPC) and Strategic environmental assessment (SEA)). Company offers its software free of charge for their use and provide all the support, and in return it expects the engagement in licence selling within the national or international market, with arranged revenue share.
The second type of partnership would be a joint venture with environmental software producer (or service provider), which would lead to further development and advances of software for EU and worldwide market, as well as novel environmental software developments (examples listed above).
The third type of partnership would entail financial arrangements through capital investments needed for realizing business plans and ambitions, described above. In conclusion, company is open to different arrangements and partnerships, including both investors from financial sector (Venture Capital, Business Angel, etc) and partners from environmental and IT industry.
Advantages and Innovations:
Web-based software for Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) facilitates the work of specialists, by speeding up the assessment process, making it more systematic, objective, reproducible and easily controllable. Innovative software covers the whole Environmental Impact Assessment process (all phases) and can be applied for all types of projects from various economy sectors.
The main innovative elements are large database of potential environmental impacts and original method for impacts evaluation. Database facilitates the impact identification process (scoping). The method for quantitative evaluation and powerful tools for results visualization and analysis provides support for experts´ final statements and mitigation measures. The software outputs are high-quality reports that can be directly submitted to competent authorities for evaluation. All of this brings significant cost reduction to experts conducting Environmental impact assessment, and much more.
Novel software is highly functional and user-friendly expert system on the internet (SaaS), having unique features. Taking into account a lot of advantages over a common Environmental impact assessment practice, lack of fully specialized software for Environmental impact assessment on the worldwide market and the fact that Environmental impact assessment is mandatory procedure for many investment projects, market potential for this software in EU and wider is large.
