Revolutionizing the Future of Bio-ingredients

Problem: Personal/home care products contain solid & liquid synthetic polymers as microplastics. These additives are unfilterable by water treatment plants, ingested by fish & enter the food chain causing many health issues. New regulations propose to ban microplastics by 2028 in the EU. Hence, we need bio-based, biodegradable & sustainable alternatives.

Solution: Bioweg UG has developed bacterial cellulase-based microbeads to replace solid microplastics and a rheology modifier to replace liquid plastics. Our products are biodegradable within 60 days as per the requirement of the new regulation. Our process is zero-waste, has a minimal carbon footprint, consumes little energy and is highly customizable.

USP: High quality cellulose; bio-based, biodegradable within 60 days; renewable & sustainable solution; highly customizable – bacterial cellulose has higher flexibility for modifications; made in Europe & competitively priced; zero waste generation (input = output); patented process; better pH and temperature stability.
