We are WORKING TO CREATE A MORE EFFICIENT CELLULOSE MANUFACTURING SYSTEM TO PRODUCE BIOFABRICATED PLASTIC-FREE MATERIALS, ALL POWERED BY INCREDIBLE CAPabilites of microbes.
Introducing the Smoby™
Made from bacterial nano-cellulose, created by certain strains of bacteria. These bacteria are able to produce cellulose in the fermentation process, so within days tiny threads start to form into a pellicle, creating an amazingly versatile material. Even without surface treatment bacterial cellulose is 10 times stronger than the molecularly similar plant cellulose.
The Smoby™ is a bio-based, bioassembled material with a macroscale structure that has been grown directly by living microorganisms and does not contain any petroleum derivatives.
Our technology makes it possible to create strong, durable, supple materials from food waste to tackle global challenges with a system solution approach contributing to a circular economy and a positive social impact.
We are developing advanced multifunctional materials that were never available before. We aim to unlock new levels of creative control by growing the materials of tomorrow.
Upcyling food waste as feedstock for our microbes.
Fermentation process to grow microbial materials.
Harvesting, colouring and surface treatment.
Finishing the material with biodegradable coating, for a safe end of life.
