ZILA Works

ZILA Works has developed a patented bio-epoxy resin made from industrial hemp. This new resin will replace toxic epoxy resins traditionally used in industrial applications. There’s an unfortunate paradox in the global race to net zero: many of the technologies designed to move our economy away from fossil fuels require petroleum-based products. For example, the materials used to make wind turbines for clean energy production, composites used to make vehicles lighter, and coatings and finishes used to make buildings last longer, all require epoxy resin as an important building block. But traditional epoxy resins are made from toxic petroleum feedstocks. ZILA Works’ bio-epoxy resin can fix that. Our resin sequesters ~700kg CO2 for every metric tonne produced. That’s like eliminating 2700 kilometers of average car travel per tonne of epoxy. And farmers can sell the rest of the plant, providing them additional economic benefits.

Join ZILA Works’ CEO and COO for a brief overview of their bio-epoxy resin technology with time for questions and networking.
