Bionative Industries is a start-up founded in 2018 with the vision of replacing plastic disposable products by fully bio-based and fully biodegradable products.
Bionative Industries has developed its own polymer, called SyRa™, using CoE BBE knowledge. SyRa™ can replace fossil-based, non-degradable, plastic disposable products in certain applications. When used in the external environment, it yields building materials for plants and organisms. Bionative Industries’ objective is to produce SyRa™ of sufficient quality to satisfy market demand in 2021. It is crucial for Bionative Industries’ success to realise the first application for a launching customer.
“Thanks to collaboration with CoE BBE and the opportunity that Avans gave me, I had a very valuable and pleasant time at the university. Setting up a sustainable company in combination with my study programme. I cannot imagine a better end to my BTC (Biobased TeCh) study”
