This week, I welcome Dr. Liron Nesiel to the show. She is the CEO of Smart Resilin, a company that is setting out to change the plastic narrative. Using Resilin, a super-performing protein originating from insects, they are using genetic engineering techniques to extract the DNA and tailor-fit the protein for a variety of use cases and produce it at a very large scale.
Having near-perfect elasticity and resilience, Resilin is the most elastic material on earth and can be implemented within a wide range of products such as elastic adhesives, sports goods, composites, 3D printing, and more.
As it is a non-toxic bio-degradable protein, these resilin-based products are environmentally beneficial game changers for multiple applications.
Their mission is to bring nature’s wonder materials to the industry - offering realistic, super-performing, green, and safe materials for a variety of applications.
