Ecovia™ Biopolymers: Next-Generation Functional Polymers

Ecovia Renewables Inc. is an R&D-stage company offering customized prototype ingredients and materials for both in-house and outsourced production.

We deploy our bioprocess to produce high-performing, multi-functional biopolymers. As superabsorbents, Ecovia™ Biopolymer materials absorb up to 300x their weight in water and show improved absorption under load than starch-based biopolymers. Produced through fermentation of renewable biomass, Ecovia™ Biopolymers are 100% non-toxic, biobased, and biodegradable. The reduced cost and feedstock flexibility of our proprietary process enables a wide range of applications, many of which were previously uneconomical.

Our goal is to create Ecovia™ ingredients and materials that exceed the performance of the current generation of biodegradable starch-based absorbents and offer a viable alternative to widely used petrochemical-based polyacrylic/polyacrylamide materials. Note: Samples for R&D Use Only.
