In developing the technology, a major priority for the company was to use yearly grown raw materials that would have minimal impact on the environment. Other priorities related to defining the material. “We wanted to create a material that was primarily starch-based,” “Tapioca was chosen due to its allergen-free nature. We wanted it to be harvestable without killing the plant, so the supply would be annually renewable. We wanted it to be rigid, too, and have insulating properties so it could be a replacement for EPS or Styrofoam.
The resulting product Tapioca Fiberware uses a process that “bakes” the starch, rather than converting starch into plastic.
