Unfortunately this project was not successful.

We source a key component in food waste that demonstrates remarkable health benefits. It is a food-safe, eco-friendly solvent and biofuel.

Since consensus was reached on humanity's contribution to climate change through unsustainable economic growth, we, unfortunately, find ourselves in a period some have coined the 'Anthropocene' [from the Greek word Anthropos meaning human].

Since the turn of the century, sustainable alternatives for almost all aspects of the industry have been saught.

Very few of these alternatives have such diverse proven benefits spanning from environmentally-friendly industrial consumables right through to healthcare and biofuels. The list is extensive.

We are promoting a circular bio-economy that stands to have far reach implications in replacing tradition consumables with environmentally friendly, food-safe alternatives.
Examples include non-harmful alternatives to industrial chemicals (food safe). 

Our main extract is a chemical found some common fruits and in other plants, It is used to make medicine and has been proven to promote weight loss, prevent cancer, treat cancer, and treat bronchitis.
Our team plan to source, refine, and distribute our a selection of products with all starting materials considered waste by linear economy models.
