Who we are

ADBioPlastics is a Valencian company focused on the manufacture of additives and bioplastics for improving the mechanical properties of virgin PLA.

Our aim is to reduce the use of conventional plastics which take between 150 and 1000 years to decompose, by using our bio-based, compostable products which decompose in just 3 months, as well as helping companies to meet imminent legislative challenges

We target different sectors such as packaging (food, cosmetics and nutrition), textiles, 3D printing, construction, medicine, agriculture and consumer goods.

We are a startup and we belong to PACKA VENTURES (Company Builder), an accelerator that turns knowledge and technology into business projects with heightened growth potential, and we are also a spin-off of Itene (The Technological Institute of Packaging, Transport and Logistics), a pioneering reference centre in the research of bioplastics located in Valencia (Spain).

At ADBioplastics we aspire to become a reference company in the manufacture of additives and bioplastics.

In order to formulate and prepare the ADBio PLA+ additive we use our BlockPLATM technology. This technology was financed by the European Horizon 2020 programme which involved an economic injection of over one million euros. We are currently finishing phase 2.

Founded in 2016, ADBioplastics received an “Honourable Mention at the New Plastics Economy Innovation Prize 2017” from the prestigious Ellen MacArthur Foundation. More recently in 2019, it was selected as the best start up in the 5th Investment Forum at the ESIC Business & Marketing School in Valencia. That’s not all. One year later in 2020, it was selected as part of the top 5 of the best bio-based polymer start ups in the world, after exhaustive research carried out by Startus Insights which saw the participation of more than 190 companies from around the world.

In 2022, ADBioplastics has been awarded the first prize of the SIR by Raorsa awards, which support and encourage projects and initiatives that contribute to the development of a new industry of intelligent, innovative and sustainable plastic materials.
