Biotic (Bio-circular Ltd)
Biotic (Bio-circular Ltd), is an Israeli start-up that is commercialising a fully bio-based and fully bio-degradeable polymer. Biotic was founded in 2020 by Adi Goldman (CEO), Nofar Hod (CTO) and Eran Perlstein (COO) – all passionate about creating a sustainable society where plastic pollution is not a concern!
Biotic are commercialising technologies researched in Tel Aviv University. Their product is a unique biological polymer in the PHA family (polyhydroxyalkanoates), produced from naturally grown algae. The algae is ocean grown, so no arable land is used and sea-water, rather than treated water is also used in the process, minimising resources used. The resulting polymer is fully biodegradeable and does not need to be recycled.
It’s early days for Biotic, but they have already had success, being selected as one of the top global startups to pitch in the StartSG Slingshot 2020 competition. They are also working with a global food manufacturer on a sustainable food packaging project. We’ll certainly be keeping a close eye on their progress!
