Israeli air quality monitoring and forecasting company BreezoMeter reportedly has been acquired by Google for an undisclosed sum estimated to be in the low hundreds of millions.
Haifa-based BreezoMeter, founded in 2014, developed a system that collects environmental data from 11 million sources around the world and applies algorithms to predict hazards related to air quality, such as pollution, pollen and wildfires. BreezoMeter has about 400 million users worldwide.
Individuals, policymakers and global businesses — such as L’oreal, Apple, Bosch, Dyson, Verizon Media and Volvo – make use of BreezoMeter’s health-focused environmental intelligence.
Google is expected to incorporate the data in applications such as Environmental Insights Explorer, Google Earth Engine and Air View.
BreezoMeter raised a $30 million Series C funding round in June 2021. In February, international research and consulting company Cleantech Group named BreezoMeter to its Cleantech Global Top 100 list. The latest feather in its cap was being named a Top Global Data as a Service Startup by Tracxn earlier this week.
We are excited to share that we’ve been named a Top Global Data As A Service Startup by @Tracxn. Everyone at @BreezoMeter is proud to be on this exclusive list that recognizes the topmost companies in the #Data as a Service sector from across the globe. https://t.co/jl1EttxpWl
