SUSTAINABLE MUST BE AFFORDABLE

Bringing together nature itself and our innovative mechanical processes, we produce ecologically sustainable packaging materials and disposable tableware. By accessing the agricultural residues that are available in the region we shorten transport routes and ensure local value creation.

The purpose of BIO-LUTIONS is to end the excessive use of petroleum based plastic and cellulose based paper in modern societies. Our game changer products are innovative, sustainable and the most ecological alternative to conventional materials on the market today.

The local production makes our customers and us independent from the stock market prices for petroleum and cellulose, third party suppliers, and international transport.

Vision

Raise awareness on the issue of plastic waste

As a global society we have an ever-growing problem with plastic and paper waste. We use millions of disposable products every day, made from petroleum-based plastics or cellulose based paper that we throw away without a second thought. Our lifestyle leads to enormous amounts of waste that take up to centuries to decompose.

Offer a sustainable and affordable solution

The BIO-LUTIONS vision is to provide a solution to this problem of unsustainable waste generation. We offer sustainable and ecological solutions for packaging and disposable tableware. This way we want to reduce the mountains of waste that end up in landfills, oceans and our own food chain.

BIO-LUTIONS products are designed to be part of a circular economy. They can decompose under natural conditions, be used for Biogas production, be recycled, or burned with a near CO2 neutral carbon footprint.

Eliminate non-sustainable disposables

We aspire to eliminate single use disposables made from petroleum plastics and virgin cellulose. We use natural fibres to create packaging and tableware products that are sustainable, non-toxic and biodegradable.

Changing the game for packaging and disposable tableware

BIO-LUTIONS was conceived by architect and industrial designer Eduardo Gordillo. As the Managing Director of Upgrading – a company specialized in POS display solutions – Eduardo Gordillo knows about the implications and waste generation from plastics typically used in the packaging and display industry. Having been part of the problem once, he decided to focus his research efforts on the creation of new and more sustainable materials.

Today, BIO-LUTIONS is an innovator in the field of bio-materials and a creator of biodegradable materials and products. The bio-materials made from agricultural residues, paired with innovative production processes, make sustainable packaging and disposable tableware affordable. Because the truth is; only highly competitive pricing has the power to fundamentally change the world of packaging.

MISSION

No infringement on the human food chain

We do not use materials that are part of the human food chain or currently being used for another sustainable production process (e.g. biofuel or biogas production). We do not cause or promote direct or indirect land-use change that is often a negative side effect to bio-fuel production.

Operating in a circular economy

BIO-LUTIONS is striving for a circular economy. The key is our raw material; we use agricultural excess, not petroleum or virgin cellulose from precious forests! These natural residues are a by-product of harvest and globally available in large quantities. We make sure that the final product is recyclable, biodegradable, compostable and nearly CO2 neutral when burned.

Renaturing the world of materials

BIO-LUTIONS has created the most sustainable solution available for ecological packaging and disposable tableware. We know that ecology needs to follow economy because a sustainable alternative also must be an affordable choice.

    BIO-LUTIONS – the Company

    • 2019

      EXPANSION to GERMANY and THAILAND

      Our goal for 2019 is to open production sites in Germany and Thailand to decentralize our production and minimize transportation distances.

    • 2018

      START of PRODUCTION

      The first factory opened its doors in Bangalore and has successfully started production of disposable tableware and packaging solutions for the local market.

      FOUNDING OF BIO-LUTIONS INTERNATIONAL AG

      Paving the way for the international operations and accommodate corporate growth we founded the international headquarters in Hamburg.

      SUCCESSFUL TRIAL PRODUCTION

      After the technical specifications were finalized BIO-LUTIONS set up a sample production facility in China. When the prototypes successfully met all of our technical, haptic and visual requirements, they underwent rigorous and extensive quality testing. The materials proved to meet the highest standards for each area of use.

      ADAPTING the PULP MOULDING PROCESS

      In order to use the natural fibres for our 3D moulding process, BIO-LUTIONS adapted and re-engineered the machines, and technically redesigned the moulds.

      PARTNERING WITH ZELFO TECHNOLOGY

      Together with Zelfo, BIO-LUTIONS re-engineered the mechanical process of fibre production. The sharing of expertise and pooling of resources led to the defining breakthrough. Agricultural excess that had previously been worthless because the fibres were not self-binding could now be mechanically processed, creating fibres that were self-binding.

      RESEARCH PERIOD

      The search for the ideal source of raw material. The goal was to find a source that does not infringe on the human food chain. Our key discovery was that natural fibres gained from agricultural residues have vast potential. After that, we started testing different transformation methods.
