Which input provides your business model/core technology towards a bio-based economy?

We are working towards a circular plastic economy as outlined by the Ellen McArthur foundation by: – designing products based on recycled materials – designing products that are recyclable – designing products that are biodegradable in different environments – designing products that are biobased – design new polymers (biobased and/or biodegradable).

Which market/clients do you address and which short-/long-term goals do you have?

Senbis serves a large variety of customers and markets. From multinationals, to start-ups, government institutions universities. Short term, we plan to launch more of our own products. Long term we want to develop a new biodegradable polymer as a drop-in alternative to PET.

What makes your approach unique compared to other stakeholders in this field?

We are one of very few fully privately owned R&D companies in the field of biopolymers. This gives us a lot of freedom in our decision making and we are very agile in our development approach. We have access to unique laboratory equipment and recently invested into brand new equipment, such as a new compounder, a state-of the art pilot spinning machine and biodegradation testing.
