Location: Reykjavík, Iceland

Besides, the startup follows a zero-waste circular economy production model that utilizes recyclable wool and cardboard while relying on sustainably sourced raw materials.

Shellworks develops Biopolymers for Packaging

Founding Year: 2019
Location: London, UK
Funding: USD 1,4 M
Innovative with Shellworks for Compostable Packaging

Shellworks is a UK-based startup that provides Vivomer, a sustainable biopolymer created using microorganisms. After usage, Vivomer is utilized as a food source by the same microbes and is degraded naturally, leaving no remnants behind. As a result, Shellworks’ packaging solutions do not produce microplastics. Moreover, the startup uses mono-material assemblies in its products such that degradation is easier. The cosmetic industry utilizes these materials for compostable lipstick and balm packaging. Shellworks also produces natural seals and dyes for their compostable packaging.
