Cleantech startup Penrhos Bio raises £1m in funding round led by Eos Advisory

Cleantech startup Penrhos Bio, which aims to revolutionise global industry with its anti-biofilm technology, has secured £1 million investment with the support of St Andrews-based impact investment firm Eos Advisory.  

The investment will accelerate the commercialisation of its patented platform technology, Remora, developed in collaboration with Unilever, that protects surfaces against bacteria, fungi, and algae. Remora provides a real and sustainable alternative to disinfectants and antimicrobial agents in domestic and industrial settings.

Founded in 2019, Penrhos Bio is already working with multiple corporate partners in industries including agritech, marine, renewables, and healthcare ahead of its first phase of commercialisation.   

Remora, is the result of over 10 years of development with research partners including a number of UK universities. It has been developed based on understanding how the biology of certain red seaweeds provides them with a natural protection against biofilms, keeping them healthy.
