Long description:

Melatech Biotechnology is a Baltimore-based company developing and mass-producing melanin-based biomaterials for radiation shielding and energy capture. They use a sustainable, patented process to grow melanin using fungi, offering a cost-effective alternative to traditional plant and animal sources. Melanin is biocompatible and has unique physical-chemical properties that can be tailored for specific uses. It even has electrical properties, acting as an organic semiconductor. Their melanin-based materials are used to create UV-shielding fabrics and coatings and have the potential to protect healthy tissue during cancer treatment. Other applications could include helping heating systems to better tolerate cold climates and develop novel bioelectronics.
