Being vegan, completely biodegradable, produced only with renewable plant-based raw materials and microplastic free, AMSilk’s fibers can influence a positive change.

Ulrich Scherbel, Chief Executive Officer at AMSilk, said: “AMSilk is focused on breaking down limitations and boundaries by providing bio-bettering solutions on an industrial scale, improving products and creating a positive impact on the environment across various industries. The move to our new offices, with improved technological equipment, a unique proximity to the enlarged laboratory and specially designed pilot plants, enable the growing team of leading experts and top industry professionals to satisfy customer needs faster and better.”

Dr. Wolfgang Colberg, Chairman and Industrial Partner of AMSilk’s Advisory Board, added: “AMSilk has made some strong developments this year towards scaling up its production to several thousand tons for existing clients within Europe and new clients outside of Europe. Its move to these unique new offices will enable AMSilk to keep up with the demand we foresee increasing over the next few years, as it aims to make smart performing biotech materials part of everyday life and make a significant contribution to a zero-waste society.”
