We want to empower industries to achieve their sustainability goals

We are here to simplify & accelerate the shift towards sustainable plastic

 

Biofiber Tech exists to reduce the global carbon footprint by creating nature-based materials for decarbonisation of everyday products. We have a unique possibility to do so by offering our customers and collaborators our first product, FibraQ, an sustainably grown alternative to fossil based plastics. It can be used without sacrificing some of the key factors that are the benefit in production of conventional plastics, such as production in large volume, flowability and customisability, things that often is missing with other sustainable material producers today. This is why our solution has truly global potential, one that can make a real impact on the environment.

We want to inspire the plastic industry to make what was impossible yesterday, a reality tomorrow!

Our approach is to always help our customers and partners find the solution that is right for them, and what we learn along the way leads to improvements in our offerings and is shared with new customers. We believe that in order to reduce the carbon footprint, we need to work together and collaborate!

"This is one of the companies that can provide very large and rapid CO2 reduction before 2030 because the technology can easily be integrated into existing processes and raw material flows - both from the forest industry and the plastics industry - without major investments," 

 

– Karin Ebbinghaus, Investment Manager at Almi Invest's GreenTech fund.

A young company with an open and dynamic approach

Our company is based on a deep understanding of plastic production and the wood fiber and its application in plastic composites. Our founder Eric Zhang, started the company to create a better alternative to already existing materials solutions for replacing plastic. 

After his Ph.D. studies at the Royal Institute of Technology of Sweden and a long career in the Swedish paper and forestry industry, Biofiber Tech founder Dr. Eric Zhang returned to this native China and was shocked by the prevalence of plastic pollution. Based on his experience and his strong drive for change, he decided to develop a way in which he could contribute to a cleaner plastic industry.

Five years later, the result was our now patented FibraQ. With its high functionality in plastic composites, FibraQ offers the possibility to replace up to half of the plastic used in products with biomaterial.

"We have looked at several companies in the field of plastic replacement, but Biofiber's technology with treated wood fibers is the one we see has the potential to scale up and deliver large volumes. To be able to make a big impact on an international scale in the sustainable plastic industry, a reliable large volume source with a competitive price is of utter most importance"
