Using a novel approach and solid polymer science, we are utilizing inexpensive, nature-based materials to address some of today's most pressing environmental issues.
Our packaging system is designed to be cost competitive and home compostable, all while still protecting the products within for extended periods of time.
To create this revolutionary material, we start with what nature has already perfected: proteins, cellulose, and polysaccharides. This blend and these membranes protect life itself - comprising plants, cell walls, eggs and even the human placenta. We all owe our very existence to these protective bubbles.
STENco uses these building blocks to design packaging systems that protect the system within from environmental ingress. It is engineered to fully degrade when conditions are right and not before.
Results through research.
