A Presentation by Molly Morse
Mango Materials produces biodegradable plastics from waste biogas (methane) that are economically competitive with conventional petroleum-based plastics. Mango Materials uses excess methane gas from wastewater treatment plants or landfills to produce pellets of polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA), a valuable polymer that is converted into a variety of high margin or high volume, eco-friendly plastic products such as children's toys, electronic casings, water bottles, and food packaging containers.
In this presentation we will go over:
- Using methane to produce a biodegradable plastic.
- Starting a company in the bioplastics space.
