Founded in 2016 by Gaurab Chakrabarti, M.D., Ph.D., and Sean Hunt, Ph.D., Solugen is a specialty chemicals manufacturer and the world's first and only producer of bio-based chemical peroxide solutions that applies green chemistry principles to re-design the production of a variety of ingredients.
The company's first product, Bioperoxide®, was created using patented enzymatic technology to convert plant sugars into hydrogen peroxide and led to the manufacturing of a comprehensive line of products such as their flagship BioSol™ and ScavSol™ solutions. Today, BioSol™ and ScavSol™ help treat, clean and oxidize water uses within the oil and gas, water treatment, cleaning, agriculture, soil and ground remediation, and food industries.
Solugen's chemistries remove the need for highly combustible and toxic petrochemical-based chemicals to clean water through products that are more effective, cheaper, safer to produce, and less hazardous for customers and their employees. Solugen's mission is to decarbonize the chemicals industry. Its comprehensive line of environmentally-friendly products help companies be responsible stewards of the environment and their local communities. And through their mobile "Mini-mills," Solugen is able to descale and geographically distribute chemical manufacturing factories, drastically impacting the way chemical solutions are produced and transported.
