mynusco: the Mynusco biomaterials platform to fight against climate change

BENGALURU: Mynusco, a Bengaluru-based biomaterials company, formerly known as Spectalite, helps businesses and consumers reduce their carbon footprint. It helps companies choose from their wide range of biomaterials, develop new materials, design products according to circular principles, convert materials into finished products and assess the life cycle impact of products.

Mynusco means “to subtract the damage caused to our ecology”. The company uses AI to choose the right biomaterial for various needs and uses blockchain to dynamically track carbon footprint and resource management throughout the product lifecycle. They have a repository of over 1000 biomaterials to choose from. Mynusco has helped companies in the automotive, consumer goods, furniture, personal care, packaging and hospitality industries implement circular solutions with their biomaterials platform.

The company enables the transition from the plastics economy to a sustainable future. 4.5% of global CO2 emissions come from the manufacture, use and disposal of plastics. The plastics economy is worth more than $2 trillion globally. Plastics-to-product processors can now use Mynusco’s biomaterials as an immediate solution to replace plastics, with little or no modification to their current molds and machinery. This creates a significant opportunity for the plastics economy to seamlessly transition to a more sustainable activity.

Mynusco aims to create value for crop waste, thereby encouraging farmers to avoid burning crops. India produces more than 500 million tons of agricultural waste every year, 2/3 of which is burned or thrown away, leading to pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. Instead of burning, if we find new ways to use crop waste, we can potentially stop 25% of India’s carbon emissions. Mynusco uses crop residues such as rice husk, rice straw, coffee husk, bamboo waste to manufacture their biomaterials, thus also helping farmers with a significant increase in their income for each harvest.

Mahadev Chikkanna Founder and CEO Mynusco said in a statement: “Sustainable materials alone cannot fight climate change. We need real partnerships between different stakeholders committed to sustainability goals in order to achieve meaningful results. biomaterials where we inspire, educate, learn and encourage OEMs, processors and research organizations to collaborate to develop truly sustainable solutions.

Mynusco aims to enable a rapid transition to an eco-friendly economy in partnership with businesses and the community, using their expertise in biomaterials and circular industrial processes.
