Microorganism-based packaging to replace traditional paper and plastic

OUR PARTNERS:
challenge

Need for alternative treeless packaging

Whilst demand for printing, writing paper and newsprint is decreasing, the demand for packaging paper is expected to increase steadily, currently reaching nearly 60% of global paper consumption. However, truly ecological paper-, cardboard- and packaging products hardly exist as they mainly rely on the use of trees. Nowadays, only 3% of the total production of paper packaging comes from sources other than wood cellulose.

our solution

Microorganism-based packaging

We are harnessing the power of biology to produce microorganism-based fibers and bring them to market as natural biomaterials with excellent mechanical properties, high water holding capacity and outstanding suspension stability. Moreover, the yield efficiency exceeds the one of plants by more than 10 times and the purification is simpler and less polluting than cellulose extraction from wood. Additionally, the use of biological waste for production as well as the integration with already existing recycling infrastructure drives the overall process towards a circular economy and decreases the manufacturing costs. Further upscaling of microorganism-based production to vertical farming creates a unique opportunity to raise the yield-efficiency by a factor of 100 compared to trees.
