About Evoco

Evoco is a material innovation company founded to defossilize the global material value chain. Since 2016, we are developing a plant-based technology platform of scalable chemistry and material technologies to help our industry partners detoxify and decarbonize high-performance consumer and industrial products.

Evoco’s innovation platform can be used to produce high-performance Bio-Foams, Bio-Leathers, and Bio-TPU technologies.  We have scaled the technology today with a focus on continued growth in the footwear industry while expanding our global reach with operations in China, Vietnam and Italy.   

With 14 patents granted, Evoco is expanding its market opportunities by introducing new materials and technologies into additional verticals and product line categories. 

Evoco’s Purpose

To lead a profitable materials transformation through plant-based chemistry.

The Issue

The world is awash with fossil-derived materials that are endangering life.

90%

Raw materials are made from chemicals and produced from oil and gas.

20%

Global GHG emissions from material productio

<9%

Fossil-dervied products are recycled, mainly going to landfill

70%

Reduction of GHG needed to meet 1.5° C pathway by 2050

To achieve our targeted decarbonization and impact goals,
we must replace oil as a source raw material with plant-based alternatives.

Plants can replace fossil-based raw materials to tackle the problem of high greenhouse gas emissions in various applications in the advanced materials and durable consumer goods industry.
