Mango Materials

Female Founder Planetary Health

Mango Materials manufactures bio-based, bio- and marine-degradable polymers using a patent-protected biological process. The process leverages a proprietary strain of bacteria called methanotrophs to transform methane into the bioplastic PHA (specifically poly-3-hydroxybutyrate or P3HB) for various use cases, namely biopolyester fibers as a sustainable alternative to petroleum-based polyester and injection.

Founders: Mollie Morse, PhD, Allison Pieja, PhD, and Anne Schauer-Gimenez, PhD
