Our purpose

For centuries, humanity has looked to nature for inspiration, marveling at its ability to solve complex problems with elegance and efficiency.

Driven by our conviction that microorganisms hold the key to solving our era’s most pressing environmental challenges, we are building automated and efficient systems around microbes to provide sensuous, high-quality biomaterials to the world.

Introducing NanoTwine™

Our technology, NanoTwine™, represents the foundation of our ultimate goal, integrating nature’s own genius, material science, microbiology and engineering. NanoTwine transforms nutrients from food industry waste into fine nanocellulose sheets. These sheets are then crafted into high-quality, sensuous biomaterials.

The process

1. Upcycling Abundant Food Waste

Using food waste as feedstock for our microbes.

2. Fermentation

Growing nano-cellulose through a fermentation process.

3. Harvesting and Processing

Harvesting, purifying, and coloring the nano-cellulose.

4. Finishing

Functionalizing and finishing the material with a plastic-free coating.
