Kraig Biocraft Laboratories Announces Successful Launch of Spring Production Trials in Southeast Asia for Spider Silk

ANN ARBOR, Mich., – April 15, 2024 –Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (OTCQB: KBLB) (“the Company” or “Kraig Labs”), announces today that the spring production trials for the new BAM-1 hybrid have begun and are well on track to meet the Company’s expectations and timeline.

The Company successfully launched the production trials of BAM-1, its newest and most robust recombinant spider silk production silkworm hybrid, on time and in line with its production roadmap. The Company’s CEO remains in Asia to directly oversee the production trial of the BAM-1 parental strains and monitor their performance.

Following health screenings and daily monitoring of the colony, the Company can now report that this is currently the strongest and healthiest batch of silkworms it has ever produced in Southeast Asia. Specifically, disease screening by the Company and its consultants has shown zero instances of disease in the colony. This can be attributed in part to the improved genetics and robustness of the BAM-1 parental strains. Moreover, significant credit for this improved performance must also be attributed to the knowledge and rearing technology transfer that Dr. Nirmal Kumar, of India, has brought to the team.

“Our team invested heavily in improving the robustness of our production recombinant spider silk strains based on hard lessons learned and the testing data collected in 2023. With the support and added insight Dr. Nirmal Kumar is providing, we are on track for the most productive and successful spider silk production year in the Company’s history,” said founder and CEO, Kim Thompson. “Dr. Nirmal Kumar will be on the ground working with our team through this entire trial of the parental strains in order to lay a solid foundation for all future production. I believe we are in the midst of a breakout year for the Company as we continue to hit our marks on the business plan and deliver on our vision for commercial scale spider silk.”

Kraig Biocraft Laboratories Shares Industry Update on Recombinant Spider Silk from Waste Plastics

ANN ARBOR, Mich., – March 28, 2024 –Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (OTCQB: KBLB) (“Kraig Labs” or “the Company”), comments on an exciting advancement in spider silk engineering from the Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (“RPI”).

Researchers at RPI published a paper in Microbial Cell Factories outlining a new and novel method of creating spider silk protein from waste plastics.

This project used a new strain of Pseudomonas bacteria capable of converting depolymerized polyethylene into targeted recombinant proteins. While this work is in the early stages, it shows the potential for this process to create spider silk-like proteins from partially decomposed plastics.

Plastic wastes continue to accumulate globally, resulting in disposal and recycling challenges as well as increased levels of microplastics showing up in our food and water supplies. Creating useful and easily biodegradable silk proteins from these materials could help alleviate this growing concern.

“I am encouraged to see the continued focus and breadth of research developing in the field of spider silk technologies,” said CEO and Founder, Kim Thompson. “While this approach using bacteria doesn’t directly create silk fibers, the potential impact of creating technologies to address the growing plastic waste and convert that into useful and biodegradable materials is very exciting. We congratulate the team at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute for their work. While our production methods have no direct connection to the work at RPI, the commonality is environmentally friendly spider silk through molecular biology.”

Kraig Labs’ recombinant spider silk production model utilizes traditional silk production systems involving planting mulberry trees to harvest and feed the leaves to silkworms. The Company’s specialized silkworms have been scientifically enhanced through molecular biology to create recombinant spider silk cocoons that are reeled to produce spider silk yarns and fabrics. Kraig Labs is currently working to expand its spider silk production footprint. The Company’s CEO and its leading sericulture expert are currently in Southeast Asia working to prepare for the launch of the Company’s spring 2024 production trials and the 2024 silk production season.

Kraig Biocraft Laboratories Announces Creation of Production Ready Spider Silk Hybrid: BAM 1

ANN ARBOR, Mich., – February 6, 2024 –Kraig Biocraft Laboratories, Inc. (OTCQB: KBLB) (“the Company”), announces the successful creation of a new recombinant spider silk hybrid. This new two-strain hybrid is the result of the Company’s successful program to produce larger and more robust production strains ahead of its Spring production trials. The Company’s technology utilizes scientifically enhanced silkworms to produce recombinant spider silk.

This enhanced silkworm hybrid, designated by the Company as BAM 1, is the result of careful selective breeding to maximize both robustness and the ratio of usable silk per cocoon. Based upon its initial evaluation and a comparison of genetics, the Company believes that this new two-strain hybrid is the most efficient spider silk production system produced to date. The finished cocoons were tested for cocoon size and silk yield.

The development of this new hybrid involved the careful selective breeding of the Company’s Dragon SilkTM strain with numerous pure commercial production silkworm strains. Once the Company’s spider silk traits were bred and stabilized in the commercial strains, a series of cross-mattings were completed to test the results of various pairings.

This new hybrid produces more useable silk per cocoon than previous hybrid pairings and is expected to make the transition from development into operations in the first and second quarters of 2024. 

“This new hybrid will play a key role in our production trials. Our team is currently scaling up production of the two parental lines used to create this hybrid. One of those parental lines is already homozygous for the spider silk gene. The next milestone, which we believe is imminent, will be to establish homozygosity with the second parental strain,” said Founder and CEO, Kim Thompson. “The BAM 1 recombinant spider silk hybrid will be the central player in Kraig Labs’ spring production trials.”
