Our world is not just facing a crisis of microplastics but also of waste management where the food and agricultural industries are the major contributors. These industries produce a significant amount of waste or by-products, which often end up in landfills or incineration, leading to environmental pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. To tackle both problems, we have developed a patent-pending circular zero-waste process that utilizes these waste or side streams as feedstock for the production of bacterial cellulose.
We are a team of 18 highly skilled individuals, who possess a unique combination of expertise that sets us apart. Our co-founders are 2nd time founders with 30+ years of combined scientific and business experience. Leading our R&D teams are brilliant scientists with strong international scientific careers, accumulating over 40 years of experience.
