FibriTech – New Opportunities for Seekers of Sustainable Technologies


Polish start-up FibriTech, after five years of intensive research and development, is completing the construction of a demonstration line for its innovative material technology. This opens the way for a wide range of applications for ecological materials.

FibriTech in its pioneering process uses organic plant-based raw materials. With its activities, the company aims to actively support the transformation towards a sustainable economy, while also addressing the problem of raw material usage. Recent decades have left behind an overproduction of plastic, of which only a small percentage is recycled. Meanwhile, the irrational use of natural resources can also pose threats to the environment.

Therefore, in recent years, FibriTech’s technology has been developed, among other things, towards use in modern horticulture as a peat-free substrate for plant cultivation. These substrates allow for precise control of nutrients and moisture, reduce the risk of pests and diseases, are portable and easy to use. FibriTech has developed substrates and cultivation technology for microgreens, herbs, flower and vegetable seedlings, among others.

Another application of materials that FibriTech can already boast of is efficient oil absorbers. The ecological sorbent in the form of sleeves, pads, or mats is effective even with minor leaks. Its light and porous structure helps reduce the costs of disposing of material that is generated after using the sorbent. It is worth emphasizing that the possibilities for using plant fibers, the main building block of FibriTech’s materials, are almost unlimited, which opens the door to thousands of applications. These include building materials, furniture materials, and acoustic materials. These applications will be tested by the company in the coming years.

FibriTech is currently completing the construction of an industrial demonstration line, for which it has obtained funding from the EIC (European Innovation Council), a fund that supports the most innovative projects in the European Union. The company is now preparing for the next steps in development, namely plans for the first factories.
