Sustainable, green materials

GL CHEMTEC combines decades of experience in polymer chemistry with extensive expertise in synthetic organic chemistry to deliver innovative tailored materials and solutions that meet your unique requirements and contribute to a greener future and the circular economy.

We have extensive experience in functionalized biopolymers (e.g. Hyaluronic Acid, Chitosan, Xanthan Gums, Amino Acid based polymers), novel bio-based adhesives, novel coatings, films and membranes, polyols, acrylic and methacrylic acid based polymers, among many others. We are able to prepare thin films and emulsions/nano-emulsions in-house and conduct full analysis on your new materials for evaluation and rapid development.

Solutions for your material needs

Our focus is on providing industry-leading sustainable materials that align with your specific needs. Through our expertise in polymer chemistry, we offer:


Bio-based polymer design
Novel materials with the highest bio-content possible.


Green formulation development
Designing the “greenest” new materials from the very earliest stages of synthetic route design.


Scalability with sustainability in mind
Developing scalable processes with an eye towards solvent and waste reduction, along with the most “environmentally friendly” raw material options.  


Cost effectiveness from the ideation phase
A systematic approach to consider the final price point of the target materials from the very earliest stages of discovery, increases the chances that your new material will be welcomed into the target industry of choice.


Producing initial batches of your new material for trials and optimization en route to the final commercial application and large-scale production.
