Created in 2022 as a spin-out company from University of Cambridge and University of Fribourg, Impossible Materials technology turns the most abundant biopolymer on earth - cellulose - into functional, high-performance ingredients.
The first technology developed by Impossible Materials is a unique light-scattering material that can be used as pigment - 100% natural.
We create, produce and sell new functional materials and structures based on cellulose for a wide variety of consumer products and advanced applications.
We employ scientific methods to tailor cellulose into efficient biobased materials solving customer pain points - nontoxic and cost-effectively. Our cellulose functional materials are produced using energy efficient industrial processes.
Deep tech meets business
Impossible Materials combines decades of entrepreneurial experience with leading technology expertise across fields, complemented by diversity and attracting young bright minds. We aim to develop products that change the world through impact.
