Podcast Episode 12: The End of Plastics

On this episode of GrantTree’s innovation podcast, What Comes Next?…

Petroleum-based plastic is destroying the planet.

It consumes energy, takes centuries to decompose, and inflicts unthinkable damage to oceon wildlife.

We must end our dependence on oil-based plastics, and materials innovator Floreon is helping us do just that.

Floreon has created an organic compound which turns PLA into “the world’s most versatile bioplastic”. Could Floreon-infused PLA finally put an end to oil-based plastics?

CEO Shaun Chatterton explains how Floreon works, the company’s journey, and what’s next for the world’s plastic consumption.
