BIOFABRICATED MATERIALS

INTRODUCING BIOFABBRICA LLC, QUALITY MATERIALS WITH RESPONSIBLE PRODUCTION

INTRODUCING BIOFABBRICA LLC,
QUALITY MATERIALS WITH RESPONSIBLE PRODUCTION

BioFabbrica LLC is a groundbreaking joint venture partnership between Modern Meadow and world-renowned Italian textile and materials supplier, Limonta. By combining our patented Bio-Alloy™ Application Platform with Limonta’s creativity, heritage craftsmanship, and cutting-edge materials manufacturing processes, BioFabbrica LLC will deliver sustainable material solutions that meet brands’ unique performance and design expectations. BioFabbrica LLC merges our innovative technologies and capabilities allowing us to immediately deliver real world impact, at the intersection of performance, sustainability, and scalable adoption.

The "Last Green" Mile

INTRODUCING BIOFABRICATED MATERIALS

Our proprietary Bio-Alloy™ technology enables creation of one-of-a-kind biofabricated materials that deliver superior color vibrance and performance while reducing GHG emissions by 80% compared to traditional, chrome-tanned leather. The creation of BioFabbrica LLC accelerates delivery of this innovation to the market. Launching its first products to consumers with brand partners in early 2022, BioFabbrica LLC is accelerating market readiness for Modern Meadow's material solutions across the full range of materials applications, including solutions in leather goods, footwear, interiors, transport, and apparel applications.

TRACEABILITY

All of our biofabrication technologies are developed by scientists at our lab in New Jersey and produced at existing manufacturing facilities that are vetted through a rigorous process to ensure sustainable and fair practices. Modern Meadow scales our technologies by partnering with best-in-class product developers, suppliers, and manufacturers, such as Limonta, who share our values around performance and sustainability to enable adoption and real world impact. We work with partners who have proven know-how and expertise so we all benefit from existing infrastructure and in doing so accelerate our impact. Our close relationship with development partners and production facilities allows brands partnering with Modern Meadow to feel confident knowing our products are 100% traceable from "Lab-to-Brand.”

TRANSPARENCY

Modern Meadow Bio-Alloy™ technology is composed of a unique alloy of proteins and bio-based polymers that offers unparalleled performance from superior durability to long-lasting color vibrancy, for a uniquely lightweight material with a natural look, feel, and patina. Our materials and claims have been lab-tested, verified, and paired with state-of-the-art manufacturing capabilities, making Bio-Alloy™ available to brands today.

EXPRESSING COLOR WITH ZERO DYE WASTE

At Modern Meadow, dye directly binds to the protein in a liquid state when we form the Bio-Alloy™ layer of our materials. This allows us to use only the precise amount of dye needed and eliminate any dye runoff from material manufacturing and finishing.

Unlike other materials that have a layer of color on top of their coating, our Bio-Alloy™ is colored in its entirety, inside and out, creating unique color depth and enriched color expression with less dye input. Since our color is firmly “anchored” to proteins in the Bio-Alloy™, the rich color expression is long-lasting and durable, with dramatically improved crocking performance.

MAXIMIZING PERFORMANCE

Our Bio-Alloy™ technology allows us to create abrasion-resistant, water-resistant, lightweight, and durable materials with long-lasting performance. Their strength and resilience are like that of cartilaginous materials, and they age naturally and soften with oils similar to natural leather. The result is a material that is supple to the touch and versatile across countless applications.

REDUCING GHG EMISSIONS AND INCREASING SUSTAINABLE CONTENT

For those looking to go animal-free and reduce the usage of virgin plastic, Modern Meadow uses efficient and low-waste supply chains to produce sustainable, biofabricated materials. Our process reduces GHG emissions by 80% compared to traditional chrome-tanned leather.

BIO-ALLOY: BUILDING ENHANCED FUNCTIONALITY THROUGH BIOFABRICATION

Bio-Alloy™ is our proprietary Application Platform that delivers unique performance and sustainability to materials. As a testament to our commitment to innovation, Bio-Alloy™ is one of only a few miscible blends with commercial applications ever developed by man, and it therefore brings a special set of mechanical and thermal properties to materials for a range of applications.

Mechanical data shows that our selected proteins combined with bio-based polymers create a molecularly-mixed miscible blend with durability and resistance far beyond each of the individual inputs. Like traditional alloys, our protein-powered solution is greater than the sum of its parts, which is why we call it Bio-Alloy™.
