Not to our knowledge.

Which market and customer need(s)/problem(s) is (are) your products(s)/service(s) going to solve?:

Popular plastics and bioplastic packaging are not as ecological as most people think due to greenwashing. In order to degrade or compost such materials, appropriate conditions are required in industrial composting plants - in Poland there is not a single composting plant that would be able to degrade bioplastic, in the USA such composting plants, are less than 50, account for 1% of the total. For the production of these plastics, food resources are needed (e.g. 2.6 kg of corn are needed to produce 1 kg of bioplastic), which is not the best use of food.
Our team creates innovative and modern material in an advanced biotechnological process. It is produced intracellularly by bacteria; is mechanically and physically similar to popular plastics (e.g. polypropylene and polyethylene); biodegrades by microbial contamination under all conditions (colloquially speaking, it is eaten by other microorganisms living e.g. in soil, sea, ocean, forest etc.), where it will leave behind compost and microelements at the end. We produce them from waste from the agriculture or food industry. It is in line with the trends of "zero waste", closed cycle, ecology, reduction of CO2 emissions.
In 2021, more than 17m tons of plastic went to the oceans, people eat up to 18kg of plastic in the form of microplastics during their lifetime, CO2 in the atmosphere increases drastically and causes global warming. Many countries around the world ban single-use plastic, which forces the market to switch to greener solutions. This is the perfect time for this type of activity.
A given material can be used in many industries - e.g. cosmetics, it is the industry that most quickly follows the ecological trends that are required by their customers. Big brands like P&G or Shiseido plan to become carbon neutral. Customers are looking for such solutions, they are more likely to trust cosmetic brands that implement pro-ecological solutions.
