what drives us

Inventing leading-edge materials derived from plants. It opens new design potential and helps solve the most pressing issues of our time.

plastic

Replacing plastic is key. Not only does it stay in landfills for centuries, it furthers our reliance on petrochemicals, the dominant contributor to global warming.

Livestock production is the single most polluting industry on earth. It creates climate change, biodiversity loss, environmental degradation, air and water pollution, excessive waste, public health risks and more.

land

Reusing materials that already exist helps divert waste from landfills and further preserves our natural resources.
