Full Cycle converts organic and cellulosic waste, including food, agricultural byproducts, and cardboard and waste paper into high-value, fully compostable bio-plastics called polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs). PHAs' harmlessly and naturally degrade in marine and terrestrial ecosystems offering an environmentally favorable alternative to traditional petro-based plastics. PHAs are adaptable and high-performance polymers with broad commercial application potential including commercial food-grade packaging and agriculture films. Full Cycle uses a patented biotechnological process to break down waste and build polymers using non-GMO wild type bacteria - mitigating costs, regulatory constraints and scalability challenges.
Because we use food waste to create fully compostable plastics we simultaneously solve two un-intented consequences of the Consumption Economy, namely organic and plastic waste pollution. Equally important, we offer regions a profitable solution for organic waste treatment and upcycling - unlocking the ability to install waste collection and processing infrastructure in those locales that are currently underserved including India, SE Asia and China.
