Startup TRL 5
E.biodye stems from the textile industry’s impactful dyeing and finishing processes, which use surfactants, salts, heavy metals, enzymes, oxidizing, and reducing agents expelled into rivers and waterways. Under this premise, E. biodye was created by professors Carolina Obregón and Giovanna Danies with biologist Diego Hernández in Bogotá, Colombia. Obtained by modifying bacteria creating a wide range of colors present in nature. E.biodye does not use harmful chemicals, making it an outstanding, unique, eco-friendly, biodegradable textile pigment.
