Our solution is innovative and impactful because
Microorganisms are a rich source of molecules that can be used in everyday life. Moving away from petrochemical feedstocks to biological and underutilised ones is an important step towards cirularity.
Replacing petrochemical feedstocks reduces the CO2 emissions in the manufacturing process of the dyes.
