OUR VENTURE STORY
R & D Innovation
Our company manufactures chitosan biopolymer that is avalaible in many sectors, isolated from natural sources and nontoxic. Isolation of biopolymer and characterisation studies carried out from edible mushrooms, shrimpsell and microorganisms. These studies are within Techno-Initiative project of Science industry and technology Ministry in 2015. Because of Chitosan has antimicrobial, antioxidant, antiaging properties, anticancer, antiulcer, acid removal, oil-water binding and absorbent properties, it is a functional product that can be used in many areas. Our company continue vigorously many R&D and innovation projects.
GREEN & ECONOMICAL
Chitosan polymer isolated from different natural sources
Natural green products are continuing to win more market share than synthetic, toxic, chemicals products.
CHITIN & CHITOSAN
Chitin found in the nature second biopolymer after only cellulose.
Chitin, and its derivative chitosan, occur naturally as the building block of the shells of all crustaceans and of the exoskeletons of every insect.
Chitin and chitosan are naturally nontoxic, biodegradable, and biocompatible and it has valuable properties for a wide range of applications.
POSITIVE ELECTROSTATIC CHARGE
In water treatment Chitosan binds with heavy metals, hydrocarbons, debris, and other toxins.
Chitosan also binds to red blood cells and suspended particles in beverage manufacturing, when used as a hemostatic agent.
Chitosan also binds to the cell walls of microorganisms, and it’s suppressing microbes through a nontoxic mode of action.
In contrast to Chitosan, the most antibiotics and bactericidal agents work through a toxic mode of action.
PLANT IMMUNE ELICITOR
Chitin is the building block of all insect exoskeletons. When a plant is treated with chitosan, it strengthens immune system of the plant. Treated plants and seeds exhibit improved nutrient absorption, increased crop sizes and yields, increased survival rates in prohibitive or severe growing conditions.
Chitosan has excellent physiochemical properties such as bioadhesive, biocompatible, and biodegradable.
The great potential of use of chitosan in diverse fields has long been recognized. The biological related properties of chitosan make it particularly suitable for applications related with agricultural, food, and environmental engineering uses.
Chitosan has several inherent properties such as bactericidal, fungicidal activity, and wound healing potential.
According to past research, chitosans exhibit a variety of biological activities including antioxidant, hypocholesterolemic, antimicrobial, immune-stimulating, and anti-inflammatory activities that give them the potential to be highly effective nutraceuticals.

CHITOSAN IN YOUR INDUSTRY
Convenient Form Versatility
There are 400+ products on the market today that contain chitin or chitosan.
Year by year, Chitosan market share is growing.
It has been shown that chitosan provides extended shelf life while maintaining or improving sensory quality in many foods.
Antimicrobial activity without the use of toxic chemicals.
Chitosan is widely used for the preservation of foods by providing a barrier to microbes which exist in the environment.
Today consumers are more warry than ever before of the effects of food preservativers can have on their health and the environment.
Chitosan coatings provide an exciting and green opportunity for food companies due to chitosan being non-toxic, biocompatible, natural, and biodegradable while showing excellent performance at extending the shelf life of many foods.
Chitosan is a natural biomolecule :
-Improves plant health
-Eliminates the need for synthetic pesticides.
-Reduces transpiration without lowering crop output.
Not only Chitosan provide antimicrobial film which is preventing mildew, but also it causes reaction to improve plant healts.
• Hair care
• Skin care - anti aging effect
• Oral care
• Deodorant deodorizing -antimicrobial
Chitosan, a natural polymer obtained by alkaline deacetylation of chitin, is non-toxic, biocompatible, and biodegradable and it has recently gained more interest due to its applications in food and pharmaceutics. Many researchers have focused on chitosan as a potential source of bioactive materials in the past few decades. The bioactivities summarized here may provide novel insights into the functions of chitosan and its derivatives. The great current interest in medical applications of chitosan and some of its derivatives is readily understood.
Wastewater: The demand for safe & clean ways to treat wastewater which occur from industrial factories, mines, and sewage will only continue to grow with the world’s population.
The US Food Drug Administration (FDA) approves the use of chitosan in these processes.
Eco-friendly solutions for a wide range of water treatment applications.
Chitosan is an ideal eco-friendly flocculant for water clarification applications due to its ability to bind to a variety of organic and inorganic particulates.
Chitosan is naturally bacteriostatic.
Thanks to our crosslinking technology, now it is more durable and easier to apply than ever before!
Chitosan is naturally bacteriostatic and antimicrobial because it has a cationically-charged structure.
When applied as a surface treatment to textiles chitosan prevents the growth of bacterial and fungal microorganisms .
Scientific research has shown that when chitosan applied to clothing, it can maintain antimicrobial activity through 50 wash cycles.
