Cell2Green – A Start-Up from Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania

Startup ecosystem map

Cell2Green is an innovative company based in Rostock, Germany, specializing in the production of a revolutionary recyclable biofilm.

This film is composed of renewable resources such as cellulose, offering biodegradability. Compared to conventional oil-based films that often end up in oceans or are incinerated, Cell2Green’s film stands as a sustainable alternative.

Dr. Dirk Hollmann, one of Cell2Green’s co-founders, initiated the company after developing an environmentally friendly process during his research at the University of Rostock. The process utilizes renewable resources to replace environmentally harmful products. Hence, Cell2Green’s film is the result of years of dedicated research and development.

Another advantage of Cell2Green’s film is its cost-effective manufacturing process. It employs eco-friendly, recyclable chemicals, reducing CO2 emissions by up to 70%. Moreover, the film can be recycled and reused through the same process after its use, contributing to a circular economy.

Discussions with MERCER, one of the world’s largest cellulose manufacturers, took place in October 2021. Furthermore, Cell2Green won the nationwide business plan competition “Science4Life” in November 2021.

In September 2022, Cell2Green was named the winner of the Inno-Awards 2022, receiving widespread media coverage, including articles in Ostsee-Zeitung, NNN, Welt, RTL news, and IHK zu Rostock. An NDR feature on the innovation award was also broadcasted.
