Biofiber Tech is a sustainable materials company founded in China in 2016. They produce FibraQ compounds, a surface-treated wood fiber that can replace more than half of the plastic content in a wide range of products, including car interiors, electronics, furniture, toys, and lifestyle products. FibraQ has 20% higher flowability than other brands, enabling structural complexity in products and causing less wear on machinery. Every kilo of plastic replaced with FibraQ equals a 5 kg CO2 reduction.
Their patented technology makes wood fibers hydrophobic and more compatible with plastics, allowing for the creation of sustainable materials for long-lasting plastic products. FibraQ compounds can be used in a range of products and production methods, from injection and extrusion molding to 3D printing. The company's innovation brings the possibility of using wood fiber-based plastics for a large range of products and production methods. Their impact is significant, as their technology can easily be integrated into existing processes and raw material flows without major investments, making it a viable solution for reducing carbon emissions.
