Field visit VDL Agrotech – Start-up Spectrik

On Wednesday 22 May 2024, we were guests of VDL Agrotech in Eindhoven. Niels Geraerts provided a fascinating presentation and a tour of VDL Agrotech B.V.’s facilities. At the same time, we got a futuristic glimpse of VDL’s various activities.

Dutch Agribusiness Worldwide is a unique organisation of suppliers pooling expertise and sharing knowledge. It also provides a stage for start-ups to expand their network and validate ideas.

Start-up tech company Spectrik was a guest at this inspiring and productive meeting of Dutch Agribusiness Worldwide.
Rick Jongen and Ad Crommentuijn MSc BSc, presented an innovative ammonia sensor. The technology, based on integrated photonics, promises less calibration and a longer lifetime of a multi-gas sensor for agriculture/livestock. In doing so, it enables targeted emission reduction solutions for a sustainable and environmentally friendly food chain.

It was a meeting full of insights and forward-looking plans.
