nature2need is leading the charge in the global polymer industry by directly incorporating agricultural and organic industrial residues into plastics and biopolymers. Our biomaterials offer a significantly reduced carbon footprint, lower material costs, and enhanced part performance. We are committed to advancing the decarbonization of the chemical industry and supporting your Scope 3 emissions reduction targets.
Over the past 10 years, through extensive in-house R&D investments and strong partnerships with innovative start-ups and global brands, we have developed technology and advanced formulations to valorize a wide variety of biomass. Building innovative products with our biomaterials is not only scalable and sustainable but also delivers a proven ESG impact, helping you establish a sustainable brand image with impact.
Our biomaterials offer a great versatility and low carbon footprint. They are ready-to-use, carefully engineered materials suitable for standard polymer processes with high quality, amazing performance, easy processing, low cost and great flexibility.
nature2need durable biomaterials are build with polyolefins, such as PP/PE, significantly enhanced with agricultural residues (e.g., rice husk, coffee husk, spent grains) or natural fibers (e.g., bamboo fibers, cellulose fibers, wood fibers) extracted from industrial residues.
Our durable biomaterials reduce dependence on traditional plastics by incorporating up to 50% by weight of renewable, non-food biomass. This results in a more permanent CO2 storage, yielding a low carbon footprint (cradle-to-gate).
Our degradable biomaterials are advanced blends of different biopolymers, well improved with natural minerals and organic fillers. Biopolymer compounds are biodegradable under industrial composting, home composting, and natural environments. All compounds can be blended with 2nd/3rd generation biomass such as bamboo processing residues, coffee husk, wooden sawdust to create a natural appearance and texture, all while maintaining a truly low carbon footprint (cradle-to-gate) at reduced cost levels.
nature2need recycled biomaterials are advanced materials built with a substantial amount of local organic waste streams, such as rice husk, coffee husk, wooden sawdust, coconut fibers, and numerous others, alongside recycled polymers. Our materials encompass a broad spectrum of grades, including post-industrial (pIR) grades, post-consumer (pCR) grades, materials safe for food contact, and cost-effective, net-zero materials directly made from mixed household plastics waste.

We deliver pioneering innovations that always put nature first. Welcome to our world built on customer orientation, quality, sustainability, and care for environment and natural resources.
We use natural byproducts and organic waste streams (2nd/3rd generation biomass) that is currently underutilized or ending in landfill. More than 3,000 megatons of residual biomass is generated annually. That's a great source; that´s circular economy.

Mottainai 5.0, a disruptive circular economy model, valorizes local, 2nd/3rd gen. biomass (agricultural residues, food processing left-overs and organic industrial waste) in-situ into biomaterial compounds: low-cost, high-performing, sustainable feedstock for standard polymer processes.
Standardized, local Mottainai sites keep biomass and recycled plastics from local sources circular to avoid air and water pollution, to stop plastics contamination and to create permanent carbon sinks. All sites are robust turn-key manufacturing entities right where waste streams originate, adapted to local needs, licensed to and operated by strong regional partners. Join us!
