Mango Materials converts carbon from methane into commercially useful biomaterials that replace polluting, fossil-based plastics. Mango Material’s mission is to end plastic pollution and climate change by replacing plastic with polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA), a family of naturally occurring biopolyesters, which works as a viable substitute for most plastic applications and is biodegradable by microorganisms, driving environmental value. ​​The company has an operating launch facility to validate the commercial feasibility of the technology with initial partnerships with good traction to date.
