Slimy Green Stuff BV is a TU Delft company that aims to develop and apply technology for the production and use of bio-based polymers. The polymers can be obtained from natural sources, either via harvesting or by bioprocess technology. The bioprocess technology allows bio-based polymers to be obtained from wastewater and treatment of industrial process streams.
Biobased polymer materials have the advantage of being sustainable and biocompatible. They can be processed in environmentally friendly solvents, often from aqueous solutions, preferably using the water they are made in anyway. They are non-toxic and non-flammable/self extinguishing. By mimicking natural materials like nacre, bone, wood it is possible to produce lightweight polymer materials with ultimate properties that are able to surpass those of current man-made synthetic polymers.
Slimy Green Stuff owns patents for the production and application of these polymers.
