More than a resource: A virtuous cycle.

We develop and produce sustainable biopolymer compounds made from plant-based renewable resources. As a world leader in fully biodegradable materials, our GMO-free and plasticiser-free products return to their source to complete the natural life cycle that ends where it begins.

Part of the biological cycle

The cycle of nature is the best possible recycling system we can have. Making advanced biopolymer compounds for products that live in that cycle is our goal. And by diverting biomass waste to composting, we’re able to greatly reduce the CO2 footprint.

  1. Growing non-food GMO-free crops to harvest their starch and sugars for our biopolymer compounds.
  2. Refinement of starches and sugars for their use as a raw material in further processing.
  3. Processing of natural biopolymer compounds into granules for converters.
  4. Conversion of biopolymer compounds into a variety of finished goods.
  5. The used goods are returned to the natural cycle through home and industrial composting.
  6. The compost is used to grow new crops and the regenerative cycle begins anew.
