Fairbrics, Project Lead, Finalist, 2020
Sustainable fabrics out of thin air: we manufacture polyester yarns using CO2 instead of petroleum products. The Fairbrics team is a diverse and collaborative group transforming the conventional way of producing fibers. In 2019, two PHDs, a material scientist and a chemist came together with an optimistic idea that through molecular chemistry, they could change the future of fashion. Fairbrics was born with a vision to fight climate change by developing circular manufacturing process. Incorporating waste CO2 as a feed-stock reduces the reliance on expensive fossil fuels. We are now a talented team of scientists, engineers, and business minded people.
