Patented technology

Our patents allow us to give a new life to production residues of the paper industry, transforming them into new resources.

*Biodegradability, compostability (certifications in progress) **Ecosustainability (Life Cycle Assessment under evaluation)

More and more companies want to redefine their standards to reduce their impact on the environment. We help them to do that.

Alkivio® is a benefit corporation, because it reintroduces into the market what would otherwise be lost. We advise companies, accompanying them towards a more sustainable production and create a green version of their products.

Based on a patented technology, the start-up Alkivio® was launched by former members of the Joint Lab of the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia at Novacart.

Alkivio®'s technology, born in the Smart Materials laboratories of the Istituto Italiano di Tecnologia (IIT), transforms paper into ALKIPAPERTM a new material with all the characteristics of plastic, both in production and use, and which is able to decompose at the end of its lifecycle. The use of paper led to a technological collaboration with Novacart, an Italian worldwide leader in the production of paper baking molds for the food sector.
