“By 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish.”

--World Economic Forum

Our Solution to Plastic Pollution

The use of non-renewable foams is a problem for every person on this planet: plastic pollution in the ocean is a persistent contaminant that harms both humans and animals. Polystyrene foam takes over 500 years to degrade; currently US landfills contain over 30% by volume plastics with the majority attributed to polystyrene and polyurethane. 

Cruz Foam transforms chitin, a biopolymer found in shrimp shells, into structural foams with an environmentally friendly process. Cruz Foam addresses both the front-end and back-end of a 'green' product by up-cycling chitin found in waste to create foam to replace petroleum-based foams. Cruz Foam matches the mechanical properties of current polystyrene and polyurethane structural foam.

From Ocean to Cruz Foam

Raw Materials Source:

Shell waste

  • 8M tons of shell waste every year

  • A bio-polymer called chitin can be found in shells of shrimp, crab, and lobster

Chitin:

  • Second most abundant polysaccharide on the planet after cellulose

  • Up-cycling chitin found in shell waste into structural foam

Cruz Foam:

  • A new patent-pending process to create chitin foam with a water-based eco-friendly method

  • Uniform cellular structure, and matching mechanical modulus with PS, PU foams

  • Sustainable & residential compostable
