Market Entry traceless materials

Project description

Natural alternative material to combat plastic pollution

Plastic pollution is one of the most pressing challenges of the 21st century. An often-proposed solution to the plastic crisis are bioplastics. However as they are not as sustainable as it seems at first sight, industry, consumers and policymakers are looking for alternatives. Traceless is a uniquely sustainable and natural alternative material. Funded by the EIC, the MaEtra project will use agricultural industry by-products to produce the bio-circular material solution, which provides the beneficial properties of plastics while being compostable in the environment. While bio-based, they don’t conflict with food production, or cause land-use-change. No hazardous chemicals are used in the product or process, and production and disposal of traceless emit up to 87% lower CO2 emissions than conventional plastic.
