About the Company
ScobyTec is a German startup with an interdisciplinary research team from the fields of biology, software development, industrial design, and clothing technology. ScobyTec develops materials from bacterial cellulose as well as their scalable finishing and production processes. The company explores sustainable and vegan materials for the textile and automotive industry to replace animal and/or fossil-based polymers. Their main goal is to bring a material that is sustainable throughout the entire production chain to the market with a comparable cost-benefit factor with the same qualitative characteristics as conventional leather, textiles, and plastics.
ScobyTec BNC (Bacterial Nano Cellulose) is composed of cellulose produced by fermentation of bacteria. According to the company, their material exhibits high mechanical strength (tear resistance, abrasion resistance); high water absorption; high crystallinity; ultra-fine and pure nano-fiber structure (natural knitted fabric); and is non-flammable, all proven by standardized test methods.
ScobyTec BNC (Bacterial Nano Cellulose) is a metabolic product of symbiotic bacteria and yeast cultures that is produced during the fermentation of carbohydrates.
