Our mission is to reduce biowaste by giving it a new life. We use a combination of scientific knowledge and traditional knowledge to deliver the hidden value of eggshell and eggshell membranes. In the Netherlands alone, 181 tons of eggshell waste fill up landfills every day! However, the eggshells are a valuable source when the mineral shell and the inner membrane are separated.
There are many benefits to using eggshell membranes. It possesses wound healing and anti-inflammatory properties. Furthermore, it also reduces skin aging from UV damage, increases collagen production and cellular activity.
Who are we?
EGGXPERT is an innovative startup company founded in Maastricht, the Netherlands in 2017. We are associated with Brightlands Ecosystem, which is located in Brightlands Chemelot Campus. The company started with two pioneer founders, Dr. Rong Wang and Ir. Msc. Chang Liu, who have a background in regenerative medicine, biomaterials, biobased materials, and materials processing.
What do we do?
We at EGGXPERT provide sustainable solutions for industrial eggshell waste by giving it a new life. We do this by separating the eggshell membrane from the eggshell and turning the eggshell membrane into a water-soluble powder. This powder (ESM) can be used for skincare and health care applications.
