The Solution

An advanced materials company that creates home compostable, single-use plastic-alternative packaging materials made from agricultural waste such as milk proteins.

Case Study

Unlike current alternatives to microplastics, which are based on plant polysaccharides, Mi Terro’s plant protein materials do not rely on chemical cross-linking for their performance. This enables them to decompose quickly and completely in the natural environment.

The proprietary technology converts agricultural waste into plastic-alternative packaging film. The film is 3 to 4 times cheaper than other bio-based materials, is home compostable, ocean degradable, heat sealable with low thickness and an excellent water and oxygen barrier.
