About Us

The “Spawnfoam” idea emerged in 2013 with a clear goal: to change the paradigm of production and consumption of petroleum derived composites and materials, such as plastics, presenting a competitive alternative of organic and biodegradable origin.

From idea to practice, today Spawnfoam is a recognized biotechnology company with major awards and prizes.
It differs in the market by the technological innovation in the development of biomaterials that contribute decisively to increase the planet’s sustainability, to improve the efficiency in the use of the resources and, consequently, to the transition to a circular economy.
