View full bio
We are creating a technology platform for 100% bio-based, naturally degradable and compostable materials that serve as drop-in replacements for petroleum based plastics. Applications will include: agricultural and horticultural products, consumer packaged goods (CPG) containers, fibers and textiles, single-use takeout containers and utensils, and space filling and protective molded parts and foams. Our compostable and in-soil degradable material technology uses lignin, the second most abundant natural biopolymer in the world and primary waste product of biorefineries and paper mills, as a low-cost primary feedstock. With our solvent-free and zero-waste process, we can tune our materials composition, mechanical properties, and degradation characteristics, allowing customers to choose from a range of products dedicated to their specific needs.
