2020 Startups and Scaleups
Plastic pollution has hit a catastrophic high, with only a minuscule 15% making it to recycling facilities. From buttons to bookcases, spectacles to school chairs and car doors to countertops, there’s a vast range of durable items that need to be brought into a circular economy through the use of sustainable alternatives to petroleum plastics, offering multiple end-of-life scenarios.
Our vision is to create a truly circular economy bioplastic, using industrial food waste as a feed source. We’ve developed a process to transform abundant food waste into Parblex® - a durable bioplastic.
