Mottainai 5.0
Mottainai 5.0 is the direct valorization of organic waste streams (2nd/3rd generation biomass) into biomaterial compounds in-situ to replace harmful plastics, support a regional circular economy and create more permanent carbon sinks. Turn-key manufacturing sites are licensed to strong partners right where the waste streams originate.
