About the company

We are B4plastics (www.b4plastics.com) and we want to guide this world to “The New Plastics

Economy”: designing new eco-plastics from scratch, prototyping them for partners and own products,

and upscaling them as the market demands. “Local”, “bio-sourced”, “controlled (natural) recyclability”

and “exclusive features” are our differentiators in this adventure.
