TECHNOLOGY

Innovation,
Not Destruction

Gelatex materials are derived from gelatin – a versatile natural protein derived from abundantly available waste from meat processing industry. 

The Gelatex Process

Re-Direct

01

Our core component is gelatin— a versatile yet undervalued byproduct of the livestock industry.

Gelatin Production

Today in the livestock industry, when animals are slaughtered only 60% of the animal may be used for meat. The rest is often discarded.

Re-Directed

As a part of discarded waste, there are bones, skin scraps and tendons that can be used to make gelatin – a natural versatile protein. Today, over 5 million tons of this material only in EU is incinerated.

Gelatex Platform

At Gelatex, we gelatin that is upcycled from this waste is used as a core component of our natural, safe, and sustainable materials.

Spin

02

We mix the gelatin into a solution. Gelatex then uses a proprietary method of spinning gelatin into insoluble nanofibrous mesh.

Formulate

Once the mesh is created, the structure becomes a perfect base for combining it with other materials to formulate it for diverse applications and industries.

Building automated production line

We are currently building a fully automated pilot production line that would enable to produce Gelatex material in continuous line with stable quality.
