The strongest material you can imagine that is still degradable in a natural habitat.

The strongest material you can imagine that is still degradable in natural habitats? First we dreamed it, then we made it. FortePlastics are a platform that fill a gap that was once overlooked by the old fossil plastics industry.

FortePlastics Applications


● Excellent yarn strength
● Complete mineralization of microplastics

Fishing nets

● Recyclable and/or degradable
● Sustainable food chain

Gear wheels

● High mechanical strength
● Avoiding nanoparticles due to wearing out


● Strong hold of food crops
● Dispose with biomass to industrial composting

Only a few years ago, “degradability” was seen as a nice-to-have feature. However, now that plastics appear in every spot around the planet, degradability has grown to one of the strongest drivers for change in applications, where “wearing out” goes hand-in-hand with high strength: fishing gear, technical textiles, sports goods, carpets, ropes, twines. Up to now though, bioplastics were not strong enough for many of these applications.

FortePlastics differentiates itself from any other plastic thanks to its balance between cost, function and ecology. The more fields we start to prototype in, the better the balance is regulated to the needs of the specific application. If we estimate the outlook of this Platform, there is only one word that crosses our minds: “Forte” (strong).

Our other technologies

Building the largest library of new ecological plastics, and having the ambition to bridge this bio-wealth to societal products used by consumers, we have started to cluster our materials.

Each of these Technology Platforms will bring more and more representative products, which have world-leading capacities in their markets.

Ready to challenge the future, together?

We are constantly looking for new challenges to redefine the composition of plastic and aiming for a sustainable future. Together, B4Plastics is on a mission.
