Develops unique bio-composites, super materials that rely on nature’s technology to produce consumer products with unique and revolutionary applications.
Polybion was founded in November 2015 in Irapuato, Guanajuato in Mexico. As population size increases, the availability of natural resources will become more scarce and limiting for humans. We must find more cost-efficient methods to manufacture materials that are non-toxic for the environment.
Polybion is a firm believer that nature will save us. Mother Nature has provided us with some of the most outstanding biomaterials that can be used for a plethora of applications. In addition to these, modern technological advances will also allow us to create new biocomposite materials that rely on the fundamentals of natural processes, elevating the numbers and types of materials that are available. We believe in a new generation of materials that instead of harming the environment, nurtures it. The environmental technologies and societal innovations we need, are often already present in the core of nature’s design since nature has, through evolution, already found the most energy-efficient solution for many problems. Mimicking nature therefore promises to be a cogent design tool for the near future.More than any other point in history, advances in science and engineering are making it feasible to mimic natural processes in the laboratory and industrialising them. The age of bio-fabrication has arrived, we are developing a new kind of materials inspired by nature and derived from it. This bio-composites can be used to create consumer products with both practical and revolutionary uses.
SDG’s of application
The Solar Impulse Efficient Solution label seeks to bridge the gap between ecology and economy, bringing together protection of the environment and financial viability to show that these solutions are not expensive fixes to problems, but rather opportunities for clean economic growth.
