Ecovia Biopolymers: Next-Generation Functional Ingredients & Materials
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 proprietary bioprocess to produce high-performing, multi-functional biopolymers from 100% renewable feedstocks like glucose or glycerol. Our lead product families, termed AzuraBase™ and AzuraGel™, are both 100% USDA-certified biobased and the latter certified Ready Biodegradable.
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 polyacrylate- and polyacrylamide-based materials. Note: Samples for R&D Use Only.
