Synthetic Biology  

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