About Solugen

Learn about Solugen and their company culture.

View company profile

Solugen is a venture-backed biotech startup that produces high-performance chemicals from plant-derived substitutes. Our award-winning hydrogen peroxide technology was developed in-house by a team of doctors, scientists, and engineers from MIT.

Solugen is a manufacturer and supplier of registered biocides and specialty bio-based solutions for divalent control in process flow assurance and asset integrity.

We challenge the traditional approach to chemicals production, which is capital intensive, dangerous, environmentally unfriendly and largely unchanged since 1942. Our patented approach takes advantage of bio-inspired reactions to use plant material as a low-cost feedstock to produce novel products cost-competitive with the competition.
