Combating plastic pollution requires biodegradability!

Agapyo jam™ is a competitive replacement for petroleum-based virgin ABS plastic in consumer products. Our biodegradable and bio-sourced jam™ has comparable ABS properties and can be melted, molded and, at end-of-life, made back into soil.

agapyo starts with nature and ends with nature

Start with nature

jam™ is 100% derived from abundant Forestry Stewardship Certified biomass. 

Core technology

Our technology is based on scalable and economic ways of converting our feedstock to an moldable thermoplastic.

End with nature

jam™ biodegrades in nature and won't leave behind any trace of microplastics for future generations.

Product 

jam™ is a 100% plant-based thermoplastic embodied with cradle-to-cradle design and manufacturing principal. This material is durable during service and degradable in the natural environment.

 

The properties of jam™ make it a natural replacement for petroleum-based ABS plastic in use today.
