Elevating Founders



We are the first circular economy technology startup in the defence sector. Developing chemical-based processes we are creating the means to regenerate complex materials, e.g. para-aramids (Kevlar) and carbon fibre so that they can be put back into the supply chain. As a team of specialists in material science, defence and sustainability we are uniquely placed to gain traction and solve the mounting waste problem in this industry. Recently described in the media as the "future of defence textiles" (although our technology has broader applications) we are already operating in our market. The Defence and Security Accelerator are supporting our technology with grant funding and we are working across the MOD and in partnership with defence contractors to gain end-user and pilot program support.
