Learn more about Sunthetics, founded by Myriam and Daniela to provide a sustainable way to manufacture environmentally-friendly nylon, and say how much do you like Sunthetics.
How to protect the environment while manufacturing the best textiles?
Sunthetics drives sustainable change in fashion industry by providing a sustainable way to manufacture environmentally-friendly nylon.
They offer an emission-free technology that can easily be implemented in chemical manufacturing plants. They are addressing the need for chemical manufacturing to be more sustainable, especially in the supply chain of the fashion industry, but innovations are difficult in complex systems. They use electrochemical reactions to easily integrate renewable energies and limit emissions of typical reactions. They are currently working on the emission-free manufacturing of a precursor for nylon 6,6, used in a variety of outdoor apparel and performance wear, a project that first started in their renewable energies engineering lab.
Already promising achievements
Sunthetics had its first round of funding from sources outside of New York University. The team made it through Stage 1 of VentureWell and received a $5,000 grant. This really propelled Sunthetics forward and showed that there was credibility in the idea.
Brand business development and sustainability departments are quite excited about the idea and have shown their support in helping this project along. Manufacturer global marketing and sustainability branding are also in favor of the project. Manufacturer technology experts, however, show a preferred interest for efficiency improvements and cost-effectiveness, which are key aspects Sunthetics is always developing in its technology.
The next step : partnering with a manufacturer
SUNTHETICS is looking for a CFO
