THE FUTURE OF PLASTIC 

Carbon Negative Polyethylene made from micro-algae

We’re Changing the Way the World Thinks About Plastic

We provide manufacturers with carbon negative alternatives to fossil fuel-based plastics. Our plastic pellets, made from microalgae, are indistinguishable from Polyethylene (PE), allowing manufacturers to efficiently cut down their carbon emissions with no loss in performance or capital equipment cost. On top of this, our plastic is fully recyclable in line with the European Union’s future vision of a circular economy.

MICRO-ALGAE
GROWTH

Micro-algae are grown in our specially engineered outdoor tank system. It requires no fresh water, arable land or fertilisers. Our unique technology prevents contamination and provides an optimal growing environment, allowing the micro-algae to sequester as much carbon dioxide as possible. For every kilogram of micro-algae grown, up to 4 kilograms of carbon dioxide is absorbed from our atmosphere. This is up to 400 times more efficient than trees making it the perfect medium for carbon capture.

MICRO-ALGAL
OIL EXTRACTION

Micro-algal oils are extracted from the microalgae following harvesting. This is done through an internally developed mechanical and chemical process, powered by renewable energy. The process is optimised to achieve high yields rates of oil to maximise power efficiency. 

OIL TO POLYETHYLENE CONVERSION 

The micro-algal oils are converted into polyethylene pellets through a chemical process powered by renewable energy, resulting in no carbon emissions. Both High Density Polyethylene (HDPE) and Low Destiny Polyethylene (LDPE) can be created using our conversion process, giving manufacturers a wide array of industry applications.
