Every day, various microorganisms feed on different sources to produce PHA.

This natural phenomenon gave us a direction and take the following steps

Step 1

Find the ideal microorganism

Step 2

Provide it with a suitable food source

Step 3

Mimic this natural process in our lab

Step 4

Make the whole process scalable

Sounds simple? Well, it’s not, this had not been done before.

Our exploration began.
Nature has answers to all your questions, just go outside and ask. Microorganisms are found in every habitat of earth: soil, rock, oceans and even arctic snow. We worked with various strains to determine the one that could not only create the ideal PHA, but could also thrive on our choice of food source.
Everything that is waste today was once valuable, we figured we might as well create value back from that waste. Industries produce all sorts of valuable items on a daily basis. But, in the process they also generate tons of waste every day. This is how we achieved our second step; we found a way to convert this waste into food source for our microorganism.
After finding our microorganism and food source, we had to replicate the natural phenomenon in our lab which would prove to be a sustainable way to make nature and industries coexist. Our goal was to develop a high-performance, economic, scalable and sustainable biopolymer that could replace conventional plastic. It took us thousands of experiments and petri dishes to come up with a proprietary method of PHA production.
We were able to innovate along the whole production chain of PHA to make a product that could be easily blended with other biopolymers to create products suitable for various industries.
