traceless material granulate biodegradable plant-based biobased plastic free

We envision a world where the materials we use impact positively on the planet, rather than leading to pollution and waste. Therefore we take nature as an example, since in nature there is no such thing as waste, instead resources are kept in continuous cycles.

FOR A FUTURE
FREE OF POLLUTION AND WASTE

MATERIALS
DESIGNED FOR NATURE

We produce traceless® materials as a granulate which can be further processed into a wide range of end products. They're a fully natural, biocircular alternative - just like natural materials, they are sustainable in all aspects, and truly leave no trace.

THAT'S THE IMPACT >

A NEW GENERATION
OF MATERIALS

We have developed an innovative, patent-pending technology to make use of natural biopolymers: Extracted from plant leftovers of the agricultural industry, we turn them into a novel generation of bio-circular and plastic-free materials.

DISCOVER OUR MATERIALS >

  BIOBASED ON PLANT LEFTOVERS

  • 100% biobased carbon content 

  • fossil free

  • based on leftovers of agricultural food production (second generation biomass)

  • no direct food conflict

  • avoiding land-use-change & preserving biodiversity

BIOBASED ON PLANT LEFTOVERS

HOME COMPOSTABLE

  • certified home compostable (NFT 51-800)

  • designed for the biological cycle

  • disintegrates under natural composting conditions in 2-9 weeks (depending on thickness)

  • safely disposable in all other waste streams without affecting recyclability or treatment, becoming a renewable energy source.

HOME COMPOSTABLE

PLASTIC-FREE & FREE OF TOXICS

PLASTIC-FREE & FREE OF TOXIC CHEMICALS

 

  • traceless base material is certified 100% plastic free (flustix plastic-free product)

  • only environmentally friendly substances in product and production process -  harmless for humans and nature

  CLIMATE FRIENDLY

CLIMATE
FRIENDLY

  COMPETITIVE TO PLASTICS
 

  • beneficial properties of plastics - suitable for a wide range of use cases

  • can be processed like plastics - suitable for many standard converting technologies (e.g. injection moulding)

  • quality competitive to plastics

  • price competitive to plastics at industrial production scale

COMPETITIVE TO PLASTICS

BASED ON
NATURAL POLYMERS

traceless® materials leave behind the familiar categories of the (bio)plastic age - and open up a new generation of plastic-free materials: natural biomaterials!

They are not only bio-based, but even biobased on leftovers, namely plant residues of agricultural industry. For biodegradation, they don‘t need industrial composting conditions, but are certified home compostable.

The secret key for traceless®' excellent compostability: Natural polymers! Because nature has produced them, the natural microorganisms out there already know how to handle them, and can easily digest them.

 

Under natural composting conditions like on a home compost, composting takes only 2-9 weeks, depending on the thickness of the material. traceless® is certified home compostable.

DESIGNED FOR THE BIOLOGICAL CYCLE

traceless® materials are biocircular - they can integrate into the natural material cycle, just like plants and other natural materials.

 

Follow their way through the biological cycle, and see how they truly leave no trace:

PLANT RESIDUES

As a raw material, we use by-products of agricultural food production, like starch production leftovers or brewery residues. By valorizing second-generation biomass, we avoid food and land-use change conflicts.

TRACELESS
MATERIAL

Using our innovative, patent-pending process technology, we extract natural biopolymers from the plant residues, and turn them into our plastic-free traceless® base material in granulate form.

FURTHER
PROCESSING

In a next step, the converting industry turns our base material granulate into flexible films, rigid material applications, or coating & adhesive solutions, using standard technologies for plastic processing.

PRODUCT
APPLICATIONS

traceless® materials are particulary suitable for products where multiuse or recycling is difficult, and where a natural plastic alternative is a more sustainable solution.

®

DISPOSAL

Under natural composting conditions, our materials break down in water, humus and CO2 in just a few weeks. In other waste stream, they won't affect recyclability, but will get incinerated and become a source of renewable energy - which is further improving the carbon footprint of the material!

END & BEGINNING
OF THE BIOCYCLE

ORGANIC NUTRIENT & CO2

Through composting or incineration, traceless® materials become organic nutrients for new plants to grow, or help replace fossil-based energy with renewable energy. This way the renewable carbon cycle is closed, and they truly leave no trace!
