Closed Loop Plastics

TripleW converts PLA products back into their chemical building block, lactic acid.

Biopolymers from food waste

TripleW upcycles food waste to produce lactic acid, a building block for the bioplastic PLA, or polylactic acid. PLA is used in a wide range of products including food and beverage packaging, automotive parts, personal care and home care formulas, 3D printing and more. Its versatility allows for the development of new and exciting applications as well. PLA is already becoming an integral part of how we eat yogurt and drink tea, how we make diapers, wipes, and feminine hygiene products, how we produce durable car parts and car upholstery, toys, biodegradable medical implants and much more.

Traditional Plastics vs. CIRCULAC™-based PLA

Plastic

CIRCULAC PLA

Source

Excavation of fossil fuels wreaks havoc on the environment and local ecosystems

Made from food waste, decarbonizes food and packaging waste and displaces fossil-based materials

Health

Due to plastic leakage and littering, microplastics contaminate our air, water, and food

If broken down into particles in the environment due to littering, it degrades into CO2 and water

Waste value at end of life

Mountains of plastic waste accumulates in landfills leaching into the environment, causing permanent disruption

The organic backbone of PLA allows simple conversion back to its high-value lactic acid building block

To seal the deal, food waste PLA will become price competitive with fossil alternatives at major industrial scale, thus PLA can serve as a circular alternative to fossil-based plastics in multiple product applications.

PLA made from food waste and packaging waste will positively impact our health and help us meet climate change goals, on a massive scale and on time.  

Upcycling of compostable plastics

Discarded PLA bioproducts or scraps can be utilized as feedstock in the TripleW Bioprocess even if they are compounded with other compostable biopolymers (e.g., PHA, PBTA, PBS).

TripleW’s chemical upcycling technology can utilize post-consumer and post-industrial bioplastic products, with or without food waste residues. Our process is inspiring companies to rethink their end-of-life strategy for bioproducts. Instead of the traditional end-of-life solutions for PLA, such as composting, mechanical recycling, and waste to energy, TripleW can convert those same PLA products back into their chemical building block, lactic acid. TripleW values your PLA-based waste. Please contact us if you would like to valorize it!
