PlasticFri - Converting agricultural waste to plant-based alternatives replacing fossil-based plastics

PlasticFri seeks to tackle the growing problem of plastic pollution through an innovative waste-based material which is fully compostable

Nearly all of the plastic that has ever been made still exists today, much of it finding its way into nature. PlasticFri is a GreenTech company from Sweden with the vision to end plastic pollution catastrophe. Conventional plastics are made from petroleum and stay in the environment up to 1000 years! By 2050, the oceans could have more plastic than fish. PlasticFri is on a mission to change that by transforming renewable resources to bio-based products for replacing disposable plastics. This revolutionary technology is already tested, validated and certified by the toughest certification standards in Europe. For its groundbreaking work, the company was awarded as the “World’s Most Innovative Sustainability Startup” among 1400 companies worldwide!
