Our Products

CuanTec™  is behind a World’s first technology that biologically separates chitin, proteins, minerals, and lipids from shellfish waste, mushrooms, and insects. CuanTec's facilities will utilise the waste that would otherwise be incinerated to extract chitin, a naturally occurring biopolymer, with a wide range of applications in the pharmaceutical, cosmetics and food industries. CuanTec’s proprietary technology naturally maintains the full chain length along with all the incredible properties of this amazing biopolymer while providing the purest grade chitin available anywhere in the World:  Chrystal™ Chitin.  


CuanTec’s first products are only possible due to our Chrystal™ Chitin and include strong, transparent, and flexible bio-based films to replace single-use plastics. Biodegradable, compostable, and naturally antimicrobial, these films can not only replace hugely damaging and wasteful single use plastics but can also extend the shelf life of fresh foods and produce wrapped within the films, ensuring that they last longer, with no moulding and less food waste.
