Startups of the month – January

We welcome 2024 by highlighting 3 startups from our community that work for a more circular economy in the packaging value chain:

QRtracing – Ecoapi S.L Traceability and control systems for industrial packaging to facilitate their recovery for reuse or sustainable management of their destruction or recycling.

Mi Terro is a venture-backed synthetic biology and advanced material company that engineers low-value biomass waste into high-value hydrophilic and hydrophobic biopolymers to end microplastic and hunger at price parity as conventional plastic yet up to 80% lesser CO2 emissions – this is a first-of-its-kind approach. Microplastic is a global public health problem that needs urgent solutions. We are excited to see such a significant leap forward in our ability to manipulate nature’s most diverse and abundant building blocks.

Emplato is a sustainable reusable packaging system that will help you reduce the plastic you produce. Emplate allows you to enjoy takeaway food without generating waste or regrets. With our application you can find participating restaurants and your nearest delivery points.
