The Innovators are:

Full Cycle Bioplastics – Ross Polk, Head of Growth
Full Cycle’s patented technology converts waste streams such as inedible food waste, agricultural by-products and used paper/cardboard into Polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) bioplastics that degrade in the soil and the ocean.

Oritain – Ben Tomkins, Business Development
Oritain wants to be the most trusted company in the world at scientifically proving origin. It provides traceability through an innovative combination of forensic science and statistics. It believes that in order to know where something truly comes from, you have to test the product itself.

Dryfiber – Cam Chidiac, CEO
Dryfiber provides a fluorine-free durable water and oil repellent textile finish which is completely water-bourne and can be applied through traditional finishing processes.
