Bio-cellulose material to replace fossil-based plastic

We are harnessing the power of biofabrication to produce advanced bio-cellulose materials through a disruptive biotechnological process, partnering with packaging and chemical companies to enable circularity in the end-of-life as an alternative to conventional materials.

Plastic is everywhere around us. However, its most valuable properties, durability and resistance, also make it the scourge of the century.

At Cellugy we believe that packaging materials should be made sustainably and designed to return value through a closed-loop system without compromising the environment.


Our technology brings an innovative bio-cellulose material produced by the bioconversion of sugars.

Its unique performance allows producers and brand-owners to meet aggressive sustainability goals and contribute to a more sustainable future.

Our product, EcoFLEXY, is the next-generation sustainable barrier coating designed for the packaging industry.

Sustainability is at the core of our company and we adhere to the following SDGs

EcoFLEXY promotes innovation for our customers, giving them the opportunity to offer creative solutions to sustainable packaging applications. We are constantly developing to add value in the adoption of environment-friendly industrial processes, in areas such nano and biotechnology, as well as resource-use efficiency in such processes.

Cellugy offers a new competitive ground for the circular model, using surplus sugar as the source of our material, and we offer a final material, EcoFLEX, that is in tune with the ecosystem.

We aim at building energy-friendly processes, and developing products that reduce CO2 emissions.

Our journey

the duo
The Idea

The concept is conceived by two researchers who were inspired by the idea to investigate the use of nanocellulose for bioplastics.

Cellugy was funded

The company was established by three diverse Founders and officially registered in Aarhus, Denmark, as a biotech start-up.

First prototype

The first film prototype was created using different feedstocks such as agro-industrial waste and surplus sugar production.

Priority application filed

Cellugy filed its first patent under priority year, which the company will use to strengthen its international market positioning.

pilot project
Pilot projects

Cellugy runs pilot projects with partners using EcoFlexy for ensuring its recyclability with the paperboard stream.

Our Partners


We are a Danish biotech startup based in Aarhus, with global ambitions. We founded Cellugy to help end plastic pollution and its environmental destruction. 

We believe in maximizing the value of advanced materials by minimizing their negative impact on our environment. Thus, we are developing high-performing sustainable biomaterials that can meet the performance requirements of packaging and chemical companies, and be recycled, biodegraded, and composted in the current waste management system.
