KitoSano S.L. is a Start-up aiming at turning Crayfish crab waste into High-Quality Chitosan (HQC). We have developed our own chemical process and are currently working to scale-up our technology into a pre-commercial plant.
Contrary to "common" Chitosan, HQC is a high performance material needed for a large number of emerging high-tech applications in manufacturing, pharmacy, cosmetics and medicine (tissue engineering, wound healing dressings, orthopaedic scaffolds, coatings of dental brackets, etc.)
