Plastics are typically produced from non-renewable materials such as crude oil and natural gas, feedstocks that were plants 300 million years ago. Attis plans to skip the 300-million-year middle-man and create affordable bioplastics directly from biomass that can be harvested and replanted. Today, bioplastics represent only 0.7% of the total plastics marketplace, a percentage that is largely due to the high cost of existing bio-based plastics.
Attis can work with plastics suppliers to provide cost reduction and increase bio-based content when paired with traditional non-renewable plastics. This enables the finished bioplastic to meet the client’s stringent performance requirements while retaining the cost structure of traditional non-renewables.
