A Presentation by Molly Morse

mango materials logo 1Mango Materials produces biodegradable plastics from waste biogas (methane) that are economically competitive with conventional petroleum-based plastics. Mango Materials uses excess methane gas from wastewater treatment plants or landfills to produce pellets of polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA), a valuable polymer that is converted into a variety of high margin or high volume, eco-friendly plastic products such as children's toys, electronic casings, water bottles, and food packaging containers.

In this presentation we will go over: 

  • Using methane to  produce a biodegradable plastic.
  • Starting a company in the bioplastics space.
