Our Story

Inspired by nature

Nature has its own way of adapting to environmental changes. Leaves, for example, can sense the right time to open their pores and let in air or close them to protect themselves. Our CEO, Nir Bassa, an outstanding cancer researcher, recognized that the same concept could be applied to create healthy indoor environments in buildings, shielding occupants from the high pollution levels outside.

Urecsys harnesses the power of AI to monitor air pollution levels and optimize ventilation, much like how plants safeguard themselves from breathing harmful air. Our system ensures that your building only draws in air when the outdoor air quality is relatively optimal, significantly reducing the amount of pollutants that enter the indoor space. As a result, occupants can enjoy a healthier environment and breathe easier, thanks to this innovative approach.

Our Development

Manifesting an Idea into a Product

Urecsys develops unique, cutting-edge solutions to indoor air quality and pollution and is the only company with the know-how to truly provide optimal indoor air quality conditions.

Through the collaborative efforts of the founders, Urecsys embarked on a research journey with a deep sense of responsibility. From the beginning, we understood that the decisions made regarding the air people breathe should not be taken lightly. The team left no stone unturned in studying every aspect of indoor and outdoor air pollution and any other aspect of air quality and air pollution, such as the effects of weather on air pollution, the mechanics of ventilation systems, or the intricacies of available measuring equipment.

With the massive data and experience gained during the research era, we’ve moved to commercialize and deploy the Urecsys solution, earning the trust of many well-known names, including numerous Fortune 500 companies. We attribute our success to our unwavering commitment to scientific rigor, which we have upheld from the research phase and continue to uphold to this day.

Experimentation and research are the cornerstones of Urecsys, and we are proud to have laid a strong foundation for our endeavors to promote healthy indoor environments.
