Silvis is working on bio-based emulsions to replace petroleum materials in paints, inks, coatings, adhesives, binders, and even cosmetics and pharmaceuticals . Petroleum accounts for 5-10% of GHG emissions from factories. Silvis is working on a lower cost, bio-renewable and bio-degradable emulsion platform which can be then productized for a variety of markets.
Petroleum is a component of plastics that exist in all these products, and GHGs are not the only pollutant. The extensive use of plastics in almost everything we touch end up in our landfills and oceans. Silvis believes they can help cleanup parts of the whole pollution chain, reducing landfill pollution and chemical waste in our waterways.
