About the team

We are team DAQ, the initials stand for Design, Accuracy, and Quality. Our project consists of a sustainable, low-cost, and resistant material for engineering applications. We transform waste into marvelous things, assuring the future of the upcoming generations and our planet.


...has been an excellent experience for us so far. Initially, it was hard for us because there are a lot of things we did not know and the time schedule was hard at first, waking up in the dawn here in our country.

But it was worth it, we have learned a lot about entrepreneurship, the European ecosystem, and a lot of useful things. It is a good place to meet like-minded people who have the same vision as we have towards making our world a better place.

This experience has also had a great impact on our personal lives, giving us the opportunity of meeting new cultures, new ways of thinking, and the possibility of improving our English and German language skills.

Specify the problem you are trying to solve: 

The major problem is the huge amount of plastic waste in the world and the small quantity that gets recycled. We are deploying sustainable materials coming from recycled sources for engineering applications.

Describe your proposed solution:

Our solution consists of a set of sustainable recycled materials that can be used in engineering applications. Their features are:

-Resistant to water, impacts, heat, and flame.

-Competitive price 

-The “raw” (feedstock) material comes from sustainable and recycled sources
