The environmental cost of synthetic packaging materials is becoming increasingly apparent to society as a whole. pluumo provides an environmentally friendly option to thermally insulate deliveries, replacing the commonly used expanded polystyrene type materials.
In turn, the world produces 3.1 million tonnes of waste feathers from the poultry industry every year. Current disposal options are limited, with poultry processors paying roughly €40/tonne for its removal, after which feathers are converted into a low-grade animal feed.
Uniqueness, Technology overview, barriers to competition
There are no other feather based thermal insulation material on the market. It possesses best in class thermal performance for a natural material. We can therefore compete with synthetic insulation material in terms of performance and do so while having much improved environmental credentials.
Market size and analysis
60 Million speciality shipments per year in the world that require thermal insulation of a type that pluumo could be used with. Global thermal packaging market is worth $30 billion.
