The biomanufacturer Mango Materials opened its Launch Facility at the Easterly Wastewater Treatment Plant in Vacaville, California, the beginning of the first phase of a partnership between Mango Materials and the San Franciso Bay Area city of Vacaville with the goal of building a biomanufacturing hub.
Mango Materials is validating the use of Easterly’s biogas as a feedstock in the company’s proprietary process to produce YOPP+ biopolymer pellets as a replacement for polluting plastics.
Mango Materials’ investors and board members gathered with city officials and others for a ribbon cutting ceremony at the facility earlier this month.
“Mango Materials is the epitome and example of what a green solution looks like in biomanufacturing” said Mayor John Carli. “Through the partnership with the City of Vacaville, they will bring green jobs to our city and all over the world. Mango Materials’ process will revolutionize and change how we think of waste with their ability to turn it into something that can be used again, reducing our carbon footprint while increasing that which will help save the planet.”
