R&D chemist / engineer
A new wave of sustainability! Saving the world from plastic waste.
If nothing changes, there will be more plastic waste than fish in our oceans by 2050. The amount of unnecessary plastic has increased drastically over the past few decades and there is a great demand for more sustainable alternatives. Sulapac has several sustainable material recipes for various customer needs. Recipes are based on two innovations: Sulapac® is a microplastic-free and fully biodegradable bio composite, which can be used with plastic manufacturers‘ existing machinery. The material is suitable for most production lines with no need to build a new factory.
Sulapac‘s mission is to save the world from plastic waste, and our vision is to become the number one sustainable material replacing plastic. One of our core values is respecting nature. We want to provide unique, high-quality products without compromising on sustainability. Sulapac is safe by design, a non-toxic alternative with a significantly lower CO2 footprint than conventional plastics. Sulapac has won several international awards and was selected among Europe’s 100 hottest start-ups by Wired UK.
