MakeGrowLab (MGL) is a biotech company specializing in the large-scale growth of nanofibers -the foundation of compostable and plastic-free materials without the need for deforestation or petroleum-based additives.
Our core technology is a high-performance nano-fiber grown by microbes
through the upcycling of local biowaste.
Scoby Packaging Materials®
SPM is Nanocellulose material synthesized by microorganisms from biowaste. It is composed of nanometer-scale cellulose fibrils and/or nanocrystals. It is used in variety of products, including being used as a reinforcing agent in composite materials, cosmetics, paints, as a food additive, and as a biodegradable packaging material.
Are you searching for eco-conscious films?
We offer durable, renewable, and plastic-free films for a variety of sectors. Our food contact approved materials offer great barrier and strength properties. The insolubility and impermeability of our technology makes them great alternatives to plastic-coated paper and plastic foils.
Turn your waste into better paper with MGL!
SPM® nanofibers is a perfect additive and coating for the paper and pulp sector. It can be used as a multifunctional additive/coat to improve strength or barrier properties in various existing materials without changing the manufacturing process.
And beyond ...
SPM technology is >600 times more efficient than growing cellulose from trees.
MGL's materials can be processed on existing material & packaging production lines.
MGL's nanocellulose is characterized by high purity, high aspect ratio, active groups, and more.
We do not use any chemicals or harmful additives to our process.
MGL technology uses a variety of plant-based waste feedstock.
SPM Cellulose fibers can be recycled with existing paper streams.
