Kenya’s Chemolex has won £750,000 to scale production of Biopactic during this year's Afri-Plastic Challenge

Kenya’s Chemolex has won £750,000 to scale production of Biopactic, a biodegradable alternative to plastic made from invasive water hyacinths that grow aggressively in Lake Victoria. The next generation material can completely replace single use plastic in food and product packaging – not only reducing plastic pollution, but dealing with an invasive plant impacting Kenya’s marine ecosystem too.

              This is a great example of how businesses can use innovative solutions to address both the plastic pollution crisis and the issue of invasive species.
