A Matter of Fruit Germany

How drinking juice could limit plastic pollution

A Matter of Fruit develops natural materials from local industrial juice press residues (also known as pomace), mainly using apple waste. This juice by-product is transformed into flexible films which offer a non-toxic alternative to synthetic materials and fossil-fuel based plastics. The new material is fully compostable and recyclable. In this way the initial pomace cycle is being extended and enables the matter to circulate further, replacing harmful linear systems. The material can be used as an alternative to PVC/PP/PU in interior spaces e.g. as blinds, lamp/window shades or dividers.
