CHITONOUS PTE. LTD. is a startup focused on the development of large-scale manufacture with biological materials, enabling circular and sustainable economic models while providing a manufacture advantage to its adopters.
Our flagship FLAM 3D process is the first fully sustainable biological additive manufacturing process, capable of producing large-scale products at low-cost with unmatched environmental characteristics. We offer the world the missing link towards a sustainable society and circular economy through the integration of biological materials and manufacturing. Our process uses natural materials available in every ecosystem, including highly urbanized environments. Linking the most ubiquitous natural resources with a freeform manufacture, this technology has been dubbed “the missing piece in circular economy” (engineering.com), enabling the production, fabrication, and degradation of materials and products in closed urban environments.
