HAELIXA

>>venture>> 2017 winner and ETH spinoff Haelixa harnesses the power of DNA in a way that could prove disruptive to the energy industry – and beyond. The company’s “smart tracers” have the potential to replace the expensive, unreliable and toxic methods currently used to assess and monitor oil and geothermal reserves. Haelixa’s unique DNA tracers can also be used as product identifiers to fight counterfeiting and increase supply chain transparency.
