Spider Silk Production

Genetic Engineering

Through the marvels of genetic engineering, we have been able to identify all the spider genes that code for the production of spider silk proteins and have placed these spider genes in the leaves of the alfalfa plants to produce our Spider Silk proteins.  

 

These patented methods of generating large commercial quantities of Real Spider Silk proteins to produce endless products and applications are not a dream, they are a fact.

Growing

Millions of acres of alfalfa are grown in the Western United States. This makes Spidey Tek’s access to hundreds of tons of Real Spider Silk proteins readily available,  

 

At a net $0.00 cost to Spidey Tek.. The spider silk enhanced alfalfa crops are harvested 8-10 times per year from fields that grow over and over again up to 5 years without replanting. The harvested alfalfa is sent through a non-polluting, eco-friendly process.

Processing

The spider silk proteins are separated and purified into a fine, white powder that can be used in hundreds of products, components and applications. The sale of the by-products created from the spider silk proteins extraction and purification process are sold as animal feed, which in turn pays for the entire cycle from alfalfa to Spider Silk proteins

 

At Spidey Tek, we have developed a proprietary wet spinning process to mass produce a spider silk fiber stronger than Carbon Fiber, Steel or Aluminum. See video on the Home page for further explanation..
