Microorganism-based materials for a sustainable future
OUR SUPPORTERS & PARTNERS:
Need for sustainable treeless fibers
Pulp (lignocellulosic fibrous material) production typically involves many mechanical and chemical processes including wood collection, debarking, chipping, grinding, refining of the wood fibers, as well as the pulping and bleaching stages. Not mentioning the transportation over thousands of kilometers, which altogether make the production very energy-intensive. Overall, the pulp sector is facing mounting environmental challenges as it is one of the largest industrial polluters of water, air and soil and contributes to global loss of forest landscapes.
Need for local production
Global instabilities, leading to supply chain discontinuities, rising energy and transportation prices put companies to a test. This results in enormous pressure on cost driven businesses within pulp dependent industries. As the long-distance transportation cannot be escaped, the logistics of pulp-based products becomes unpredictable and often unprofitable, leading to shutdown of related production facilities and businesses.
Microorganism-based fibrous materials
Treeless Pack produces truly sustainable microorganism-based fibrous materials by local fabrication in highly scalable and automatable platforms and upcycling of industrial organic waste. We are harnessing the power of biology to produce natural fibers without the use of trees and no long-distance transportation of any resources is required. Treeless Pack furthermore develops novel sustainable applications of the microorganism-based fibers across industries using its unique mechanical and biochemical properties.
