The living paint fighting climate change

Cyanoskin is a cutting-edge paint designed to revolutionize the way we approach environmental sustainability in urban areas. By utilizing untapped building surfaces in cityscapes, Cyanoskin is able to absorb large amounts of pollution through photosynthesis, ultimately capturing carbon emissions and reducing the carbon footprint of our cities. The paint grows and thickens over time, allowing for maximum absorption and long-term benefits for the environment. With Cyanoskin, individuals and businesses can make a significant impact on the environment in a practical and cost-effective way.

Cyanoskin is an innovative living paint designed to absorb pollution, specifically targeting carbon dioxide in urban environments. It represents a pioneering approach to tackling the challenges of climate change and urban pollution. The Cyanoskin founders come from a variety of backgrounds including, business, biology and the arts. Our multidisciplinary team met at Imperial College London's climate entrepreneur club with a shared vision of creating greener cities.
