Creation of the company

Our company was created in May 2020 as a spin-off of the CNRS. BeFC was founded on decades of pioneering biofuel cell research, pivoted towards emerging markets in the packaging, wearable and single-use medical markets.

With a team of world class engineers, scientists, and problem-solvers, BeFC develops an organic and eco-friendly energy solution for the next generation of smart and sustainable electronics.

Industralisation phase

Following VC seed financing in June 2020, BeFC have invested in optimising material selection, product design, as well as refining processes to improve compatibility towards industrial production.

The company’s robotic sheet-to-sheet machine is capable of producing 2000 units per day for prototyping and industrial testing. In the middle of 2021, BeFC started developing a roll-to-roll process, to be implemented by the end of 2022.
