We want to help brand owners and producers to reduce their CARBON emissions and to achieve their SUSTAINABILITY goals.
We are here to simplify & accelerate the shift towards sustainable plastic
By replacing fossil-based plastic with FibraQ compounds Biofiber Tech help Brand owners reduce their CO2 emissions.
Biofiber Techs patented technology makes wood fibres hydrophobic and more compatible with plastics. Therefore, FibraQ compounds can be used in products where wood-fibre based plastics have not been an option before.
With sustainably managed forests as a resource, they create sustainable materials for long-lasting plastic products. From household products to 3D printed furniture or electronics, to name a few!
The innovation brings the possibility to use wood fibre-based plastics for a large range of products and production methods. From injection and extrusion molding to 3D printing.
FibraQ can be sold to any plastic compounder with a twin-screw extruder, no need for the compounder to be specialized or adopt production from existing. Giving any compounder a chance to create sustainable plastics by offering wood-fibre based plastic.
FibraQ compounds can be sold to Brand owners or manufactures for use in existing tooling and processes where they today use fossil-based plastic like, PP/PE/ABS/TPE etc.
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 fit their needs, and what we learn along the way leads to improvements in our offering and new knowledge to shared with our 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 fast moving and always evolving company with a growing diversified team.
Our company is based on a drive for change of the existing plastic industry, to reduce the reliance of fossil fuel and to reduce global carbon emissions. Our founder Eric Zhang, started the company to create a better alternative to already existing materials solutions for replacing fossil based plastics.
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"
