Business Idea

Kerline is a spin-off of the CNR, which is the result of the scientific activity of researchers in the Bologna research area on the valorization of wastes from the textile industry and other agro-food industries. With this research, the Kerline team obtained high molecular weight keratin, a natural, innovative and multifunctional biomaterial.

High molecular weight keratin can be engineered into various forms such as gel, film, nanofibrous membranes, sponges, emulsions, micro and nanoparticles. Kerline's keratin  is a versatile biomaterial for applications in different market areas, including functional cosmetics, drug re-formulation, and non-invasive biomedical devices or advanced medications, less painful and more compliant for partients as respect to other therapeutic forms (such as oral administration which are impractical for critical subjects such as infants, children , unconscious patients, etc.).
