Is the imitation of models, systems and elements of nature for the purpose of solving complex human problems and has given rise to new technologies inspired by biological solutions at macro and nano-scales.
Or broadly, Biomimetics or Biomimicry is the process of looking at nature for answers to problems throughout our existence. Man has discovered that it has answers to engineering problems such as systems, structures, self-healing abilities, environmental exposure tolerance and resistance, self-assembly, and harnessing solar energy, etc.
The terms are derived from Ancient Greek: βίος (bios), life, and μίμησις (mīmēsis), imitation, from μιμεῖσθαι (mīmeisthai), to imitate, from μῖμος (mimos), actor.
Webster Dictionary - study of the formation, structure, or function of biologically produced substances and materials (such as enzymes or silk) and biological mechanisms and processes (such as protein synthesis or photosynthesis) especially for the purpose of synthesizing similar products by artificial mechanisms which mimic natural ones
Nature.com - Biomimetics is an interdisciplinary field in which principles from engineering, chemistry and biology are applied to the synthesis of materials, synthetic systems or machines that have functions that mimic biological processes. Biomaterials are any natural or synthetic material that interacts with any part of a biological system. Biomimetic designs could be used in regenerative medicine, tissue engineering and drug delivery.
MHE® for Fire/Flame Retardant Products
Molecular Heat Eater (MHE) products are biodegradable, multi-award winning, and worldwide patented; which means they are an excellent and a uniquely naturally balanced, organic fire and flame retardant.
Renowned and guaranteed for being in harmony with the chemistry in human, animal, plant and environmental metabolism (as in the Krebs Cyclethe cycle), this extraordinary achievement is because of the unique biomimetic balance, just like nature does it…
As such, and as a first-rate product; it is remarkably cost-effective, and genuinely toxic-free, has no migration of chemicals, and been extensively tested over two decades to be environmentally friendly, whist being certified to meet selected European fire safety standards.
