Our people and organization are driven by a passion for exploring new technological territories, based on the latest knowledge and trends. With an agile and pragmatic approach and in close partnership with our customers we develop products and applications in response to ever-changing consumer demands. Just to mention a few: from extending shelf life of bread to limiting waste and from dishwasher-safe plates and cups of bioplastics to the polymers used in resorbable orthopedic implants. Our strategy is aimed at realizing commercially attractive biobased alternatives by redefining technological boundaries.
We do all this with a belief that we can create a better future. We want to improve the quality of life for people today and generations to come.
