The search for plastic packaging alternatives is moving at a rapid pace, with everything from algae to mushrooms being touted as a potential material of the future. But some are looking to the past to reimagine what they can create with materials that came before plastic.
Tanbark Molded Fiber is a packaging solution that transforms plant fibres into sleek moulded fibre products. The startup is distinctly positioned to facilitate smaller production runs, thanks to an innovative machine built by its co-founder, and can scale to large production runs as well. Filling this market gap is a feat in itself, but Tanbark's plant agnostic machinery offers massive potential, from branching out into tree-free fibre moulding to conducting green chemistry experiments. So if you've got an idea you're keen to test, look no further.
