What makes a bio-based membrane so special?
At our current consumption levels, there could be just 50 years’ worth of fossil fuel left. But as oil reserves decline (and the stability of oil comes under risk), alternatives like bio-based synthetics are on the rise.
The technology behind bio-based membranes means we can create high quality garments from renewable, natural resources.
The commercial bio-based synthetics that are currently available come from renewable sugars, starches and lipids. Think corn, beets, sugar cane and plant oils. In the future, there may be an opportunity to extend this to even broader range of renewables, including algae, fungi and bacteria.
Our vision is that bio-based synthetics will one day become a viable alternative to unrenewable synthetics.
