Commercially available today, we are collaborating with the biggest brands, converters and distributors in the world.

Delivered within existing value chains via our ‘drop-in’ Masterbatch process, our technology has absolutely no impact on the manufacturing process.

Furthermore, processing aids (slip, anti-static/block) or performance additives such as nucleating agents or colourants do not alter the Biotransformation performance, in any way.
