I was born in México city and since my chilhood i was passionate about science, thats why i studied biotechnology engineering. During my bachelor i developed different projects such as natural dyes with nut`s shell,pumice stone as a vehicle to deliver nutrients to plants and bioplastics. At the last part from my bachelor i created the startup called Ecoplaso intended to develop bioplastics out of organic food waste.
I have worked at Pfizer, University of Alberta, Hopital Angeles, Universidad de Barcelona and InDRE on areas as molecular biology, bioprocesses and nanomaterials.
Ecoplaso was born on 2015 as a way the reduce and reuse the food waste in our city.
So… We developed a technique to transform this organic waste into sustainable materials,
some people called “vegan leather”.
