Japanese Knotweed is an invasive species that is spreading rapidly across the Netherlands leaving a trail of destruction in public spaces and our biodiversity.

Turning a hated plant into a loved product.

We are developing a material that is versatile and 100% made from Japanese Knotweed without damaging additives. The material can be reused and eventually biodegrade.

Winner of the BlueCity Circular Challenge 2022!

Within six weeks, we developed a proof of concept and business case for our knotweed material. With the support of experts in the field of circular economy and a lot of motivation, we  created a glimpse of our future vision.  

We are looking forward to taking our next steps in the development of our material, to help people finding peace with this hated plant!
