Waste Is everywhere, our oceans, our mountains, our planet.  Our solutions are designed for circularity

The Pressure you face is real and in need of real solutions

we can help

Terram Lab envisions a future where closed loop systems are easily created by eliminating the need for plastic and PFAS barriers on paper streams.  Our coating technologies enable a new era in closed loop systems where our packaging can be placed in on-site bio-digesters and immediately turned back into compost; avoiding landfills.

Mounting Consumer Pressure

Consumers are demanding better solutions

  • 85% of respondents agreed that single-use plastics are harmful to the environment in a global Ipsos survey
  • 83% of consumers were more likely to trust a company that invests in sustainability according to a study by Accenture
  • 72% of U.S. consumers were more likely to buy from a company that supports environmental issues, according to a Cone Communications study
  • 81% of global respondents felt strongly that companies should help improve the environment in a Nielsen survey

Regulation is Increasing

Plastic Bans & Restrictions

  • The Single-Use Plastics Directive “SUPD” (Directive (EU) 2019/904), was adopted by the EU in June 2019. This directive aims to address the environmental impact of single-use plastic products and packaging
  • 11 States have now banned PFAS in plastic
  • Over 100 countries now have a full or partial ban on single-use plastics
  • Lawsuits are being served for damages caused by forever chemicals in packaging

Plastics and Alternatives are not solving the problem and are expensive

Lightweighting plastic doesn't help recyclability and sometimes lowers product performance

Bio-Plastics end up being a contaminant in recycling streams and ultimately is still a plastic

Moving to more recyclable plastics still doesn’t address the human health issues with using plastics
