Of the one million tons of plastics produced daily, less than one percent are made under natural conditions (ambient temperature and pressure). All flora and fauna in the world today have been made under these circumstances; nature has a proven track record in this dating back almost 4 billion years. Why should our daily plastics be made at high pressures and elevated temperatures? How long can we continue like this? After a century of high temperature and pressure abuse, isn’t it time to get back to as nature intended? We certainly think so, and so have started to explore what can be made using syntheses conditions much milder than those currently practiced in the fossil plastics industry.
Uniqueness: Lowest energy consuming materials during production
Production characteristics: production temperature <100°C, atmospheric pressure
Raw materials: very diverse
Energy input for production: up to 50% energy saving compared to incumbents
Building the largest library of new ecological plastics, and having the ambition to bridge this bio-wealth to societal products used by consumers, we have started to cluster our materials. Each of these Technology Platforms will bring more and more representative products, which have world-leading capacities in their markets.
