KCL was established in 2007 to develop products and technologies based on the collagen molecule. For this purpose, we aim to build the collagen ecosystem by developing projects that evaluate the leather industry products, waste, and by-products as new value-added products.
KCL research focus is divided into three main areas;
KCL BIOMATERIALS: We are developing innovative biomaterials from animal tissue wastes for tissue engineering, biomedicine, regenerative medicine, and bioprinting applications. The company bases its activity on its technology creation and has obtained patents for two product families, with more applications pending.KCL HEALTH & NUTRITION: Our team, which conducts research in the health and nutrition field, works to develop alternative food and food additives from natural-derived wastes. In addition, the development of new protein sources using biotechnological methods and their use for nutritional purposes are also in our team's fields of interest.
KCL LEATHER & TECHNOLOGY: We work to make the leather industry a non-polluting industry that recycles all of its waste and produces with the principle of zero waste. Re-evaluation of wastes in production, alternative bio-solutions to replace substances prohibited by REACH regulation, and circular economy are among our working areas.
KCL R&D has its own offices, laboratories with top-of-the-line equipment, and a pilot plant for chemical synthesis and fertilizer production. Our infrastructure has been equipped with R&D test and analysis laboratories and it is possible to carry out to synthesize, characterize, and process of bio-polymers and advanced composites. KCL is currently involved in 2 Eureka projects, 1 of them coordinated by KCL, and also has participated in more than 25 TUBITAK-funded projects which is The Scientific and Technological Research Council of Turkey.
