Silicon Valley Clean Tech Speaker Series

June 7, 2012, 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM PDT

Owing to a rising preference for green products from both consumers and government agencies, demand for biodegradable and non-petroleum-based plastics is growing rapidly. Come learn how Mango Materials produces biodegradable plastics from waste biogas (methane) from wastewater treatment plants and landfills? Are such bioplastics economically competitive with conventional petroleum-based plastics? What kind of plastic does Mango Materials make? What kind of products can be made from the bioplastic? Food packaging? Water bottles? Children’s toys? Cell phone casings? Plastic bags? Learn about Mango Materials’ strategy. How and when will you be using products that came from waste methane?
