Mottainai 5.0 - a disruptive circular economy - valorizes local, 2nd/3rd generation biomass (agricultural residues, food processing left-overs and organic industrial waste) in-situ into biomaterial compounds: low-cost, high-performing, sustainable feedstock for standard polymer processes. 

Standardized, local Mottainai sites keep biomass and recycled plastics from local sources circular to avoid air and water pollution, to stop plastics contamination and to create permanent carbon sinks. The sites are robust turn-key manufacturing entities right where waste streams originate, adapted to local needs, licensed to and operated by strong regional partners.

Mottainai 5.0 summary
Terrace farming in Muong Hoa Valley, Vietnam
A tremendous amount of valuable biomass, like agricultural residues, is dumped into landfill, rivers or is burned, creating air and water pollution, wildfire risks and significant GhG emissions.
biomass - plastics - warming
Sea Turtle
Plastics pollution is one of the most pressing environmental issue. Recycling rates are low. Most of our plastics trash eventually ends up in our oceans. 
Dramatic Sunset over the Mountains
Biomass contributes to the reduction of GhGs from the atmosphere and helps mitigate the challenge of climate change. Keeping biomass as a whole as long as possible constitutes a more permanent carbon storage and removal from the atmosphere.
We offer solutions that tackle all problems in the same time - truly disruptive, sustainable and profitable for all stakeholder.

We support local projects that require performing, low-cost and sustainable material feedstock. Our partners use modular bricks simply molded in-situ with Mottainai materials to build houses, schools, sanitary facilities, hospitals or make-shift shelters, or they realize sustainable industrial solutions instead of using virgin plastics or other carbon intensive materials. 


Let´s discuss your needs!
