Company Deep Dive

Security Matters has the potential to revolutionise the supply chain technology market. 

The company owns technology that can permanently 'mark' any object whether solid, liquid or gas. The molecular marking can be read using a ‘reader’ at any time throughout the supply chain.

The technology has been in use for the last 10 years on a national scale and has proven to be a reliable and scalable way to accurately verify proof of origin and ensure quality assurance for products in virtually every industry.

The marker could accelerate the global transition to a circular economy by creating a zero-waste industrial system and a sustainable supply chain.

A faster path to a circular economy

Security Matters’ patent protected its technology in 2015.

It can accurately and transparently track any material throughout the supply chain and allow:

  • Companies to guarantee their products (and materials in the products) have been ethically sourced

  • Consumers to confirm the origin and authenticity of their purchases

  • Governments and businesses to recycle more efficiently by accurately identifying and grading waste

sub-molecular, hidden marker system
STEP #1 - The Marker

The Marker is sub-molecular and hidden

The energy-based technology was originally developed by the Israeli Ministry of Defense.

It uses a permanent or erasable marker that can be applied to any type of material and chemical state (solid, liquid or gas).

They're like invisible barcodes, non-damaging, and 500,000+ distinctive molecules ensure uniqueness of each marker.


STEP #2 - The Reader

The Reader identifies markers in real-time

They're available as a hand-held device or an industrial apparatus for larger-scale applications (with conveyor belt underway).

The technique is non-destructive, and no lab testing is required.

STEP #3 - Secure tracking

Secure Tracking on the Blockchain

All readings throughout the supply chain are securely recorded in the cloud. This provides real-time and complete visibility from raw material to final consumer product.


Key Milestones

Historical Milestones

MOU signed with Perth Mint

Established the world’s first fully transparent mine-to-marketplace ESG gold supply chain assurance solution.

Completed pilot project with Intel

Successfully completed a proof of concept with Intel that could enable the tech giant to determine if their motherboards have been tampered with.

Signed a binding collaboration agreement with BASF SE

The partnership will enable the world’s largest chemical producer to track closed loop recycling, authenticate sustainability claims and improve sorting of plastic waste.

Collaboration agreement with Continental

Premium tire manufacturer Continental is testing the marker technology to ensure natural rubber used in their tires has been verifiably grown and sourced in a fully sustainable manner.

Established partnership with luxury goods brand LVMH

Commenced an R&D project with LVMH Métiers d'Art to provide visibility over its supply chain. The program will enable efficient sorting of materials for waste or recycling throughout a product's entire life cycle. LVMH will also be able to verify meeting environmental, social and governance (ESG) ethical sources.

Developed unique IP to trade plastic waste on the stock exchange

Tokenising plastic waste is now in the phase of commercialisation. By first verifying the quality, quantity, and origin of plastic materials, then logging this data on the Blockchain, plastic credit tokens can be traded as an asset in financial markets.
