Gelatex is a materials science startup that was founded in 2016 in Estonia (now having holding in UK) and aims to make eco-friendly materials accessible to everyone. This means that eco-friendly materials should also be mass-producible in a fast and cost-effective way. Currently the startup develops eco-friendly leather-like textile that is made from gelatin derived from the waste of leather or meat industries. That enables to give higher value to waste and make up to 5 times more material from one animal. Material is chemically identical to leather but comes in rolls, it is made using no toxic chemicals and its production is fast and environmentally friendly.
