Green Elephant Biotech: Pioneering sustainable solutions in Biotechnology

Green Elephant Biotech is leading the charge in promoting sustainability in biotechnology through innovative plant-based plastic labware, offering eco-friendly alternatives to traditional petroleum-based plastics.

The biopharmaceutical industry is at a crossroads, faced with the challenge of balancing innovation with environmental responsibility. One company that is taking a proactive approach to this dilemma is Green Elephant Biotech. Founded with a mission to revolutionize the biotech industry’s sustainability practices, Green Elephant Biotech has developed a range of plant-based plastic labware that aims to reduce the industry’s reliance on disposable plastics derived from petroleum.

Green Elephant Biotech’s flagship product, the CellScrew®, is a novel adherent cell expansion system that uses the principle of an Archimedes screw to achieve low-shear gas and media mixing. This innovative design not only improves cell culture efficiency but also reduces the environmental impact by minimizing the use of disposable plastic labware.


In addition to the CellScrew®, Green Elephant Biotech offers a range of other plant-based plastic labware, including a 96-well plate made from PLA (polylactic acid). PLA is a biodegradable and compostable bioplastic that offers significant environmental benefits compared to traditional plastics. Green Elephant Biotech’s PLA 96-well plate has a 50% lower carbon footprint than plates made of polystyrene, making it a sustainable alternative for laboratories looking to reduce their environmental impact.

Green Elephant Biotech’s commitment to sustainability extends beyond its product offerings. The company has embraced five guiding principles – sustainability, honesty, optimism, responsibility, and appreciation – that drive its daily endeavors. These principles guide not only its product development but also its internal operations, ensuring that sustainability is at the core of everything it does.

Through its innovative plant-based plastic labware and commitment to sustainability, Green Elephant Biotech is setting a new standard for the biotechnology industry. By encouraging researchers and industry professionals to rethink their use of disposable plastics and adopt more sustainable practices, Green Elephant Biotech is leading the way towards a more sustainable future for biotechnology.
