Conifer Bio Polymer
Traditional plastics have a detrimental impact on our air quality, waterways, and communities. If we continue to produce petroleum-based plastics at our current rate, greenhouse gas emissions could reach 1.3 billion tons per year by 2030. That's why we pivoted to Conifer Bio Polymer. A new generation of material that combines the functionality of traditional plastics, while limiting their negative effects.
Plant-based, zero waste
Conifer Bio Polymer is created from plants, corn or sugarcane to be exact. Raw organic matter is converted to simple sugars and then polymerized into the material that you know and love.
The corn or sugarcane is collected.
The organic material is ground and distilled into simple sugars.
The simple sugars are converted to lactic acid.
The lactic acid is purified and polymerized into raw bio-plastic.
Pigments and additives are added for colour and texture.
The raw material is 3D printed into sustainable products.
