Our commitment to the environment 

Preserving water quality today has become a major issue.
Water treatment and control, before consumption as drinking water or before discharge into the natural environment in the case of wastewater, are imperative to avoid environmental degradation, to maintain its ability to provide quality water and to preserve health and biodiversity.
In the same way, the control of the toxicity of sludge from treatment plants, used for agricultural spreading or composting, is essential to preserve the quality of our soil and our food.
ViewPoint, a 30-year specialist in video image processing for medical and environmental research, is developing a new range of solutions dedicated to the detection of harmful substances in water and sludge in order to protect the environment.

ViewPoint asserts yet again its full commitment to the preservation of the environment, using its historic expertise in the design of high-tech technologies to help preserve ecosystems.

ToxMate, a multi-species water quality biomonitoring station 

ToxMate, developed by ViewPoint in partnership with INRAE, is the only connected multi-species biomonitoring station that assesses the environmental impact of sewage water in real time, online and continuously.

ToxMate is a station made to detect the impact of micropollutants in the water, through living organisms, of urban and industrial treatment plants, or drinking stations,

Tested and proven on site, its ease of use and autonomy makes ToxMate an optimal solution for real-time water quality monitoring.


Our customers talk about ToxMate

 ToxMate helped us to obtain our pumping authorisation, as a derogation, since we ensure the good quality of our discharge water, which represents 70% of the volume, before returning to the natural environment.

When Toxmate is placed at the inlet of the plant, we can see the micropollutants coming in. It does not detect any at the outlet of the plant. This shows our performance in capturing and treating them.

 The subject of water quality is of major importance in our time. The treatment of wastewater must be irreproachable in order to respect biodiversity and the quality of the water in the Eure. The Toxmate tool provides us with additional security and accompanies the agents of the Mare Corbonne wastewater treatment plant on a daily basis.

ToxMate is developed in partnership with INRAE (National Institute for Research in Agronomy, Food and Environment) Lyon, with the support of the AERMC (Rhone, Mediteranean and Corsica Water Agency), the European Union and the Rhône-Alpes Region.


In order to preserve a good quality of soils, the French regulation foresees soon the the implementation of new measures. . These are additional controls on sewage sludge, prior to its recovery by composting or agricultural spreading in particular.
ViewPoint has developed a fast assessment method for earthworms.
From its automated behavioral analysis, GreenSludge provides the ecotoxicity score of the sample within 24 to 48 hours after receipt at the laboratory.
