Cellana, Inc. and Living Ink Technologies Enter into Joint Development Agreement for Sustainable Algae Inks
Feb 7 17
Cellana Inc. and Living Ink Technologies announced that they have signed a letter of intent for the joint development and commercialization of inks containing Cellana's renewable algae biomass. Living Ink's sustainable algae-derived ink is 100% plant-based, renewable and biodegradable. The majority of the ink is algae, turned into ink, and applied to paper. This novel ink will replace conventional ink that uses petroleum products and other finite chemicals, most of which are toxic. Cellana will supply Living Ink with whole algae biomass from its Kona Demonstration Facility, and Living Ink will formulate inks and be the route to market. Financial terms of the agreement were not disclosed.
