MakeGrowLab (MGL) is a biotech company specializing in the large-scale growth of compostable and plastic-free materials without the need for deforestation or petroleum-based additives.

 

Our core technology is Scoby Packaging Materials® (SPM), a high-performance nano-fiber grown from microbes through the upcycling of local unwanted food/beverages.

SPM® suspension is a perfect additive for the paper and pulp sector. It can be used as a multifunctional additive to improve strength or barrier properties in various existing materials without changing the manufacturing process.

It is also a great alternative to fossil-fuel-based additives in cosmetics and other commonly used chemicals.
