Air and water, Nature services: Applied Biomimetic

Applied Biomimetic

Applied Biomimetic have adopted the very idea for sorting and separating molecules that nature has been refining over millions of years.

The technology is based on aquaporin and other trans-membrane proteins found in almost all living cells. Using electric charge and gatekeeping mechanisms, these highly specialised proteins are controlling the flow of a wide range of molecules in and out of cells across the cell membrane. The ability to mimic nature’s control mechanism for molecular flows in cells paves the way for a wide range of useful applications.

Aquaporin allows only water molecules to pass through the cell membrane. Embedded aquaporins, stacked in multiple layers on a polymer base, are the active ingredient in the Mangrove membrane.

Water Treatment
Our basic biotechnology concept – embedding proteins (aquaporins) into a polymer membrane – is already being implemented in applications for water treatment. Mangrove Membranes, a subsidiary of Applied Biomimetic, is licensing our IPR to develop cost-efficient prototypes for various commercial water purification applications, such as
– Desalination
– Bio-tech
– Food and beverage processing
– Wastewater treatment
Applied Biomimetic’s technology is also very well suited for innovative solutions in a range of other sectors, including:

Medical
– Membranes for artificial kidneys and dialysis
– Dosing and delivery of pharmaceuticals

Health and Personal Care
– Active coating for contact lenses for regulating the biochemical balance in the eye
– “Smart cosmetics” delivering skin nutrients and active substances etc. at the pace and in the dose needed
– Power generation based on salinity differentials between brackish water and seawater
