Horizon 2020 Grant for IBERIA XRF


We are proud to announce that the EU agreed to grant 50,000.00 Euro to the "IBERIA XRF" project by J&C Bachmann GmbH within the scope of the Horizon 2020 programme.

IBERIA XRF is a miniaturized probe that uses X-Ray Fluorescence analysis to measure with outstanding accuracy the ground’s mineral composition along small, low-impact boreholes. Without any radioactive sources, the compact probe directly collects precise and real-time elemental analysis information directly inside the borehole. The probe will help improve the efficiency of the prospecting and exploration stages, by reducing its cost and duration by 80%.

The EU grant validates the development up to now as well as our plan for the next steps. Consequently, we are confident in our ongoing work for the global market launch of the probe. For any inquires in this regard, please contact our Account Manager Jan Bachmann.
The Horizon 2020 grant agreement number is 835678; Link to official information by the EU.
