A greener solution to Wastewater Treatment
Gaurab Chakrabarti and Sean Hunt founded a company called Solugen, a company that focuses on manufacturing industrial chemicals that are more affordable, efficient, and biodegradable.
One of their most notable achievements from this venture is the manufacture of hydrogen peroxide from enzymes produced from gene-edited yeast. They used this product to also make a range of bio-based solutions for things like waste-water treatment, wipes, and cleaning agents for hot tubs, spas, pools, etc.
Part of their huge success is due to the popularity of PeroxyZen, a naturally processed cleaning agent for spas that also works well to clear mineral buildup/scaling in pipes because of the organic acids it comes with.
The duo has also had a share of success with the innovation of biodegradable wet wipes (which was bought out) and also have their eyes on manufacturing hand sanitizers on a large scale.
