MicroRio

MicroRio plans to transform the $654 Billion (2020) plastics industry and its downstream markets using a game changing Polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA) production technology. The process uses methane, a renewable feedstock that does not compete with food and arable land use. MicroRio PHA’s would be cost advantaged, and price and property competitive to the conventional plastics it would replace.
MicroRio is bringing to market the first affordable plastic that is 100% biodegradable, renewable, and bioabsorbable.
