Some types of polymers are made in a reversible way, so it’s relatively easy to break the molecular chain down, purify the molecules and build them back up to a new polymer with virgin qualities. Kiduara is actively involved in such molecular recycling for polyester, polyamide-6 and polylactic acid.
Durable products made from advanced biobased materials
It has taken millions of years to turn organic material into oil. We make plastics out of the oil and in no time it ends up as landfill or is incinerated to become CO2. We can break this cycle by looking at using renewable, compostable and recyclable materials based on fast growing organic material to make top quality materials and products.
Connect with impact
The Netherlands has a thriving circular economy hotspot. To make impact on a global scale we need to connect to learn from each other, share experiences and best practices and bring solutions to the spots on this planet where we can make most progress. At Kiduara we have a passion for connecting Europe with Africa and Asia Pacific.
Kiduara supports very early stage impactful circular start-ups active in the interface of materials, re-use, advanced business models and international collaboration with seed funding and active support and coaching. Current examples of Kiduara’s investments are Arapaha in The Netherlands and CL2B in Viet Nam.
