named after Nuatanbu Island in the Pacific Ocean that has been swallowed by rising sea levels caused by climate change.
We believe there is a radically better way to design consumer products that are compatible with Earth. It has become clear to us that plastics must be replaced on the market. By connecting institutional research with commercial design, we developed a unique biobased material that will accelerate the transition to the circular economy and move us closer to a sustainable future.
Founded by interdisciplinary design-driven research team of crafting plastics studio, the innovative solutions are created in partnership with institutional research teams from Slovakia and Germany.
Manufactured from 100% renewable resources
Stable & durable
NUATAN degrades in industrial compost into water, CO2 and biomass within 120 days. Currently we are also working on a home-compost versions.
NUATAN are material solutions based mainly on Polylactic
acid (PLA) and Polyhydroxyalcanoates types
of biopolymers (PHA).
These are produced out of natural resources e.g. corn starch, potato starch, etc.
Depending on the blend,
NUATAN can last dozens of years, can withstand high pressure and resist temperatures of up to 100°C.
made of raw renewable resource
decomposts within 120 days
withstands 100°C degrees
visually unique, coloured with natural pigments
nontoxic and non-allergic
designed and manufactured
With its exceptional properties, NUATAN solutions can be processed by standard plastic industry technologies as injection moulding, 3D printing, extruding,
CNC milling, laser cutting,
heat pressing, etc.
The results are innovative bioplastic solutions with unique aesthetics suited for high-quality consumer products. They are biobased, biodegradable, durable and heat stable when they need to be.
NUATAN solutions can be tailored into a variety of end materials for applications ranging from interior objects, fashion accessories, houseware, to consumer electronics parts.
To date, we have established successful partnerships with best-in-class furniture and houseware companies, fashion brands, innovation leaders and many more.
We are looking for forward-thinking companies with strong values of innovation and environmental responsibility to build durable consumer products together.
