We support agile start-ups and large corporations in replacing carbon intensive materials by identifying and implementing alternatives, with a special focus on polymer materials across various industries.
Materials represent approximately 20% of total greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. This makes them a crucial component in the journey toward decarbonization (Scope 3). Raw materials are now emerging as an urgent frontier in the decarbonization effort. It is of paramount importance for companies across all industries to gain a comprehensive understanding of innovative, low-carbon materials and eventually have sufficient access.
We specialize in sustainable materials with the highest potential to bridge the carbon emissions gap.
nature2need biomaterials are innovative, low-carbon footprint drop-ins for polymers used across different industries.
The chemical industry touches almost everything around us and is deeply integrated across all industries. We guide the decarbonization of plastic products through innovative material feedstock, new designs, and processes. We have an understanding of global regulations, for example, those governing materials that come in contact with food, and many more. We apply advanced technologies and disruptive solutions to maintain a competitive edge and sustainable brand image. Greatest impact comes with sourcing low-carbon feedstock or increasing the use of recycled and bio-based feedstock, using drop-ins for traditional plastics. whenever possible. We foster collaborations with providers of low-carbon, recycled, and bio-based feedstock.
Emission-reduction approaches within the automotive industry typically center around adapting components to reduce input emissions by employing raw-material substitutes and increasing the use of renewable feedstock. The practice of using natural fibers to decarbonize materials and parts without compromising safety, quality, and durability is well-established in the industry. Another option is the use of lightweight performance composites to reduce overall vehicle weight.
For building materials producers, a significant portion of upstream Scope 3 emissions stems from the use of raw materials, which include aluminum, cement, clay, copper, glass, gypsum, steel, and timber. New materials derived from organic waste streams and simple mechanically recycled plastic waste are disrupting the construction materials industry by providing carbon-negative substitutes
