Technology Overview

Bioplastics are a type of plastic derived from renewable biomass sources such as vegetable fats and oils, plant-based cellulose or starches, or some combination of the above. They are often touted as a more sustainable alternative to traditional petroleum-based plastics, as they can reduce reliance on fossil fuels and produce fewer greenhouse gas emissions.


"Despite the potential benefits, bioplastics remain unpopular, expensive, and difficult to scale." (Alex Blum, Co-founder/CEO at Applied Bioplastics) 1
