Lets go zero waste


Singapore is going zero waste!

If you partner with us, your packaging will be temporarily swapped out with our biodegradables, and we’ll collect the food and packaging waste at the end of each day. We’ll then put it into our bio-digestor which will convert it all into nutrient-enriched, organic compost within a mere 24 hours.


Getting on board is as easy as one, two, three!

✓ Certified zero waste
✓ No change in operations
✓ No renovation (No CAPEX)
✓ From types of 2 wastes to 1: Foodware + Food Waste

Step One

Choose from our range of compostable packaging options and swap out your current packaging.

Step Two

Customers simply dispose of food waste and NEUTRIA foodware into our brown bins. No separation of your food waste and packaging waste needed!

Step Three

We arrange collection and transport the waste to our digestor plant

Zero waste is a growing focus in the media.

We will document the process and share it with all our participating F&Bs and the press. We are happy to work with your PR team regarding promotions surrounding the trial.

Addressing the global plastic waste crisis

The ocean has become an enormous dump for our plastics. Microplastics are finding its way into our food and our current landfill/ incineration solution is not sustainable. What are we doing about it?

12

Despite demand, recycling sustainably remains difficult.

Meet Bio24

Bio24 is an elegant way to recycle single-use foodware and food waste. It comprises three parts: NEUTRIA foodware, Bio24 digestion, and compost enrichment.


24hrs, From Table to Farm

Bio24 is an industry partnered programme that ensures the waste from single-use foodware and food waste gets renewed, from table to farm. This way, consumers can continue to enjoy the conveniences of single-use foodware and F&Bs achieves zero-waste without costly operational changes.

The Bio24 Process


Neutria Foodware

NEUTRIA® material is a bioactive polyester derived from plant based sources. It breaks down rapidly upon deactivation in the Bio24 digestor. Sturdy and durable with no compromise in functionality, it’s easy to go green with NEUTRIA.

  • ✓ Wide range of packaging solutions for hot and cold food and drinks
  • ✓ Durable and functional
  • ✓ Made from organic plant materials that decompose rapidly in our Bio24 digestor


Bio24 Digestion

The Bio24 digestor comprises a catalytic degradation process which significantly reduces the composting time of the NEUTRIA® material – chemical free. Coupled with natural enzyme action, the NEUTRIA® material is reduced to compost in just 24hrs.


Compost Enrichment

After 24 hours in the digestor, foodware and food waste turns into nutrient-enriched, organic compost ready to pack and send to farms.


TRIA x The Soup Spoon

We recently partnered with Soup Spoon to take on their food waste and convert it into compost through our digestor. Take a look at the video below to see how it works!

“For us, to take it to the next level is to look at building a much bigger ecosystem.”
