Mango Materials announces path to biodegradable fibers

Molly Morse announced at SynBioBeta 2017 that Mango Materials has a path to biodegradable fibers. The PHA fibers are an interesting solution that allows you to have a closed-loop process and help reduce the amount of waste generated by the textile industry. “The material can also reduce ocean plastic pollution. If a T-shirt made from regular polyester is washed in a washing machine, tiny microfibers typically wash down the drain, and because they aren’t broken down at wastewater treatment plants, can make it into the ocean. Fibers from the new material would degrade at a treatment plant instead, and if a whole T-shirt happened to fall in the ocean, marine organisms could digest it.” Click here to read the entire Fast Company...

Mango Materials Recognized for SBIR/STTR Successes

Recently, Mango Materials was recognized for their successes with the NSF SBIR and NASA STTR program. This post highlights the early methane to biopolymers work here on Earth using the NSF funds along with the more recent methane to biopolymers in a microgravity environment funded by NASA. We are honored to have received this funding and are looking forward to continuing to share results and lessons learned. Read the full post on the SBIR website by clicking here.
