NUATAN is an oil-free bioplastic solution completely made from renewable resources that is fully biodegradable in industrial compost, leaving no carbon footprint behind.

Bratislava-based studio ‘crafting plastics!’ worked in close collaboration with material scientists from Slovak University of Technology and research company Panara to create a more durable bioplastic material for value added products, which can withstand temperatures of over 100 degrees Celsius and has an estimated lifespan of 1-50 years depending on blend composition.

Its biocompatibility could help to reduce plastic waste in oceans.
