About Us

Ambition & Honesty, Lda (A&H), it’s a Portuguese company created in April 2020, in the midst of the COVID 19 pandemic, with the aim of producing Type IIR Surgical Masks, in order to meet the needs and demand that were felt at that time, in Portugal and Europe, of this type of medical devices.

Thus, thanks to the great dedication and hard work of our employees and other partners, it was possible in just 60 days to install a manufacturing unit and start production of Surgical Masks Type IIR, duly approved and licensed by all the competent bodies, namely by Infarmed (National Authority for Medicines and Health Products).

However, given the considerable number of thousands of masks that were thrown into the trash after being used, our environmental awareness quickly alerted us to the indispensability of developing a Surgical Mask that was Biodegradable, Recyclable and Compostable.

Thus, after several months of conducting trials and laboratory tests in Portugal, Spain and Italy, it was possible to find the correct formula for creating the First Type IIR Surgical Mask, biodegradable, recyclable and compostable.

In fact, this is the first Ecological Surgical Mask produced in Portugal and in the World. An initiative of which we are very proud.

However, following the path of business innovation in the environmental area, which has guided us since the beginning, in early 2022 we decided to take a few more steps towards protecting the environment and environmental resources, developing a new, innovative project in the area of recycling and solid urban waste recovery from PP, PE and PET plastics, transforming such waste into new secondary raw materials in the form of pellets, 100% biodegradable.

Through this Innovative Waste Treatment and Valuation Center, it is possible to separate, treat and value different types of plastics, by type and colour. This way allowing plastic waste, that would inevitably end up in landfills, transformed into micro-plastics and that would take about 400 years disappearing into nature, to be transformed into new plastic, recycled and 100% biodegradable.

The problem of treating hazardous hospital waste, its increasing production and its consequent perverse environmental effects, also caught our attention and led to, together with renowned partners in the field of industrial equipment, the possibility of conceiving the Waste Reset System, whose main objective is the correct treatment of hazardous hospital waste still in hospital facilities, which, after being treated, shall be transported with the other hospital waste, to a Treatment and Recovery Center.

More recently, due to the abrupt increase in energy prices in general and electricity in all Europe and world, we decided, once again in joint efforts with our partners in the field of industrial equipment, to create the Breath System, which allows the production of energy from various types of waste, without producing CO2.

The Breath System is a modular, easy-to-install system that generates electrical and thermal energy from organic and plastic substances, such as solid municipal waste, hospital waste, plastic waste or tyres, treated in such a way as not to produce or release substances harmful to the environment.

Finally, and always following the path of innovation and the search for solutions to environmental problems and the consequences of climate change in our daily lives, we decided to dedicate our efforts to the analysis of the problem of the lack of water in general in the world and to the search for technological solutions that will make it possible to fight the lack of drinking water in the world.

Thus, with this goal, Ambition & Honesty joined Finnish partners in the implementation of an innovative technology in the area of treatment and purification of wastewater, industrial and rainwater: NewPacs System, patented worldwide.

The NewPacs System is a technology created and intended for the continuous purification of urban wastewater, industrial water and rainwater, as well as the removal of odours, through the use of innovative technologies and biocides, that allow the complete destruction of DNA of all harmful bacteria/viruses/pathogens and complete elimination of their odours, making these waters potable and, as such, liable to be used for human consumption.

With the development and implementation of these projects, Ambition & Honesty intends to contribute to the implementation of a more circular economy and better use of existing resources, thus contributing to the objectives set by the European Union and COP27 on climate change.
