About ÖKOSIX

What we’re doing hasn’t been done before.

ÖKOSIX® is an award-winning start-up founded in 2021. We’re a team of scientists, material experts, engineers, designers and entrepreneurs setting a new standard of medical face masks. We create sustainable face mask and fabrics solutions which are made of plant-based fibers and natural materials as an alternative to single-use plastic.

We received grants from ITC HK and Gold Award from Inventions Geneva for our patent-pending technology of making fully and truly biodegradable and medical face masks. And we are expanding our proprietary technology to other applications.

How it started ÖKOSIX

It all began under the Scandinavian night sky in 2014. Our cofounders were captivated by the breathtaking Aurora Borealis like swirling rivers which was the most fascinating phenomenon they ever experienced in their lives.

Being the world’s most sustainable countries, the Scandinavian region has taught our cofounders that the Earth is beautiful, and yet fragile.

One of our cofounders has more than 13 years’ experience in environmental tech, drug and medical tech related industries. He believes that technology can change the world and bring a better life and environment. 

In Feb 2020, there was a serious shortage of face masks in COVID-19 outbreak, especially the kid masks! Therefore, they decided to start a company to manufacture masks in Hong Kong for our next generations.

As the pandemic persisted, the production of masks kept increasing and the factory was expanded. However, this actually worried Eddie - the problem of used disposable face masks.
