FOR A FUTURE WITHOUT
85% of all plastics ever produced worldwide are still in landfills or pollute our oceans.
We adress this global challenge with our sustainable alternative to single-use plastics.
MATERIALS DESIGNED FOR NATURE
Using our innovative, patent pending technology and a circular economy approach, we are able to transform agricultural industry residues into our novel materials: traceless film, traceless plast and traceless coat.
THREE MATERIALS –
Our materials are ready to replace plastics in a wide range of single-use applications. All products made of traceless materials degrade under natural composting conditions and are free of hazardous additives or solvents.
BASED ON NATURAL POLYMERS
100 % HOME COMPOSTABLE
BASED ON RESIDUES
NO FOOD CONFLICT
SAFE FOR HUMANS
COMPETITIVE QUALITY AND PRICE
DESIGNED FOR THE
Taking nature as an example, traceless materials are able to integrate into natural material cycles - just like plants and other natural materials. Follow traceless materials' way through the biological cycle, and see how they truly leave no trace:
We use left overs from agricultural industries, like starch or brewery residues as a raw material. This saves not only money and energy, but also valuable agricultural land for food production
Using our innovative, patent pending technology we transform the raw material into our base material in liquid or dry form
FILM, PLAST, COAT
Out of our base material we manufacture alternatives for plastic films, hard plastics and coatings
traceless materials are particulary suitable for products that are used only once, like single-use packagings, products with high abrasions that end up in nature and products in close contact with humans
end & beginning
of the traceless lifecycle
Natural composting conditions break traceless products down in 2-9 weeks, depending on their thickness. Disposed in other waste streams, traceless won't affect recycling or treatment processes
Through composting, traceless materials become a source of nutrition, without leaving a trace!
