Congratulations are in order! Larta Alum Mango Materials was featured on NPR’s Morning Edition on Monday, June 17th. Their biopolymer production technology, used to create sustainable materials to replace plastic in textiles, was highlighted as an innovative solution to a global problem. Larta was honored to work with Mango Materials both on their Phase I SBIR grant with the National Science Foundation and as a featured company at the 2015 Ag Innovation Showcase in St. Louis, MO. We have since enjoyed watching them flourish and grow on their way to healing our planet from the effects of harmful plastic waste. Read the full article or listen to the radio clip here.
