Ligar is commercialising a technology called Molecularly Imprinted Polymers (MIPs), which allow for selective capture, filtering, and extraction of molecules at scale. The versatile technology has significant market application across a number of industries,  including pollution and contaminant removal, flavour and substance rebalancing, high-value molecule extraction, and compound quality improvement,

Originally developed at Waikato Institute of Technology (Wintec) and the University of Waikato, Ligar currently targets three global applications:removing taints from wine, beverage rebalancing processes, and cannabinoid extraction. The company’s technology is closely protected by patents and trade secrets, with opportunities in the future for further filings.
