AEROPOWDER is an award-winning startup creating novel materials from surplus feathers.
We are creating, using and disposing of products at an ever-increasing rate. In a world of finite resources, there is a need to create the products of tomorrow in a more environmentally conscious manner. Often such innovations can be inspired by the natural world. We feel it is time to turn our attention to feathers.
Introducing the world’s first thermal packaging material made from surplus feathers.
Packaging is important. Especially so when it is needed to protect items from changes in temperature during transport. But often such materials are made out of expanded polystyrene that has a devastating impact on the environment.
This is where pluumo comes in. Surplus feathers have been turned into a unique, high performance insulation textile and then covered with a compostable food grade liner. The result is a product that can be used to replace conventional polystyrene packaging and enable more sustainable deliveries.
Feather-based products for a more sustainable future
pluumo is just the beginning.
Thousands of tonnes of feathers are generated by the poultry industry each day, and are primarily treated as a waste by-product.
However, feathers possess a range of interesting properties. Feathers are lightweight, strong and thermally insulating. So we believe that they have the potential for so much more.
Our goal is to promote a responsible future, where our environment and the products we use are built from sustainable and environmentally friendly materials.
All thanks to feathers.
