Titan Clean Energy Awarded ISC Bioplastics Challenge Phase 2
Titan is pleased to announce that the company passed the requirements to enter Phase 2 funding for the federal government’s Innovative Solutions Canada Challenge for Improved Compostability of Bioplastics.
The goal of this challenge is improved biodegradability of bio-based plastics derived from agricultural or wood-based biomass suitable for use as replacements for single use plastics such as food packaging.
Titan’s product passed the test for biodegradation during composting at a rate in line with international standards. Titan will be focusing efforts on creating single-use food packaging, including restaurant take-out containers and meat and vegetable grocery store packaging, particularly the shipment packaging between producer and grocery store.
President Jamie Bakos is excited to move into Phase 2 of this Challenge. “The market demand for compostable bioplastics is already huge” he said, “and will only grow as we move into sustainable food packaging and reform single-use plastics. We anticipate that our company will produce the world’s first carbon-negative bioplastic though this program and would like to thank ISC Canada and Agriculture and Agri-Food Canada for their initiative and support in leading sustainable innovation.”
