Biopolymer Foam

MILK MaterialLab BioFoam Symbra Technology


BioFoam consists of biopolymers, i.e. renewable, plant-based materials such as corn starch and sugar cane. BioFoam is therefore an organic-based foam that can be recycled. The material is biodegradable and can be industrially composted at high temperatures under the influence of moisture and bacteria.
BioFoam is suitable for long-term use.
