Paques Biomaterials, based in the Netherlands, produces biodegradable materials using renewable resources and circular feedstocks. Their proprietary technology harnesses the natural process of bacteria accumulating PHA up to 90% of their cell weight while consuming organics in residual streams such as industrial wastewater or solid organic wastes. Their products can be used in various industries, including packaging, agriculture, and textiles.
Their innovation lies in the development of biodegradable materials that can replace traditional plastics, reducing waste and pollution. Paques Biomaterials is committed to creating a more sustainable future and their impact can be seen in the reduction of plastic waste in the environment. They plan to build their first full-scale PHA biomass production plant in 2024 and begin production of their fully biodegradable Caleyda product in 2026.
