Advanced materials, with a 5 billion-year advantage.

Biodegradeable. Compostable. Carbon negative.
And this is a single eukaryotic plant cell. Multicellular organisms like plants and trees contain billions of cells.
Now say hello to the humble microtubule —a major component of the cytoskeleton— found within each and every living cell.
Microtubulin, in turn, is composed of thousands of α- and β-tubulin dimer proteins, which enable rapid polymerisation (growth) and depolymerisation (decay) of the cytoplasm.

OUR ZERO WASTE VISION

We know it won’t be easy but we’d like to set a new standard in sustainable design and manufacturing.

Essentially we believe in creating as little waste as possible.
We aim to produce zero operational waste.

But our main objective is not just to have a ‘minimal’ impact on the environment –to be “less bad” so to speak– but in fact the opposite: the small amount of waste that we do generate has to benefit nature, not harm it.

How can we do that? Well, there is no such thing as waste in nature. Nature’s own philosophy is that waste equals food (one organisms waste is anothers’ food).

In the future we also hope to use waste byproducts and offcuts from other industries as a source material to ‘upcycle’ into more valuable resources. In other words, we are already trying very hard to be “waste negative” not “waste positive”.

We think that this is not only the right path to follow, we think that is the only path to follow.

That’s what we really mean by zero waste.
