Ecovia™ Biopolymers: Next-Generation Functional Polymers
We are deploying our fermentation platform to produce high-performance, multi-functional biopolymers. Ecovia™ Biopolymer materials can 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.
Ecovia™ Biopolymer application areas and benefits include:
Agriculture / Horticulture
Improved moisture retention in soils and hydraulic mulches
Improved rheology of hydraulic mulch mixes
Improved Performance Compared to Current Biobased Superabsorbent Materials For Absorbent Hygiene Products
Higher Performance Functional Moisturizers for Natural & Organic Skin Care Formulations
