Our Mission

What we are looking for:

We are looking for 1 million angel investment to allow us to set up a demonstration plant to make 10,000T bio-adhesive in UK , which will use around 30,000 T of brewing spent grain and create 20,000 T of bio-based construction decoration board for eco-friendly furniture which will estimate to result in a value-added business with £5,000,000 revenue for bio-resin and £20,000,000 for other associated products (packaging, building materials , module for sea cucumber protein farming etc) to achieve our main principle:  Turn Waste into Valuables.
