Oliver Shafaat

CEO & Founder

Company details

Sci-Lume Labs’ Bylon is the truly circular apparel fiber that can replace conventional fibers like nylon, polyester, and cotton.

Bylon is made from biobased agricultural waste; is 100% recyclable and biodegradable; can drop into existing manufacturing facilities; offers familiar performance versatility; and is compatible with conventional downstream yarn and textile processing.

Bylon can significantly abate industry emissions and, by delivering both circularity and commercial viability, is uniquely capable of achieving the large-scale adoption needed to enable a circular apparel future.
