What if we could make a fully compostable material that was both strong enough and economical enough to actually replace plastic packaging?

Because we recognised a problem
Single-use plastic packaging is the primary type of plastic polluting our oceans, food chain, and environment. It needs to be replaced by a biodegradable alternative.
To have a large-scale impact, plastic’s replacement must be able to compete on both performance and price.
With the arrival of Toraphene, there is now a solution that meets both of these crucial criteria.

We saw the need for a new direction.

Our plan: harness nature’s best technology to create a real solution.

a synthesis of nature’s technologies
Natural biopolymers alone are not strong enough, nor impermeable enough to truly compete with synthetic plastics. 
But if we reinforced nature’s biopolymers with nature’s strongest material (graphene), it would deliver a revolutionary solution that is strong enough and economical enough to replace plastic packaging. 
So, that’s what we did. We combined graphene with natural polymers to make Toraphene™, a fully compostable, biodegradable material that can compete with synthetic plastic packaging on both performance and price.
a synthesis of nature’s tech
Natural biopolymers alone are not strong enough, nor impermeable enough to properly compete with synthetic plastics. 
But if we reinforced nature’s biopolymers with nature’s strongest material (graphene), it would deliver a revolutionary solution that is strong enough and economical enough to replace plastic packaging. 
So, that’s what we did. We combined graphene with natural polymers to make Toraphene™, a fully compostable, biodegradable material that can compete with synthetic plastic packaging on both performance and price.
OUR MISSION
We believe that one way to help end plastic pollution is to replace plastic packaging with a material made by life that works for both people and the planet. So that’s what we have worked to create.
By harnessing nature to make biomaterial packaging from both natural polymers and graphene (just carbon, one of the building blocks of life), we have a truly viable replacement packaging that nature knows what to do with. 
Instead of polluting the oceans, our material fully degrades by being consumed by microorganisms that use it as food for growth, enabling life to restore itself.
