The Materiom Commons

An open-access database and community platform supporting biobased materials innovation for packaging, textiles, durable goods, the built environment and more.



Advance your R&D and build on the latest research by exploring our open-access database of biomaterials recipes – what they’re made of, how they’re made, and their performance properties.


Showcase your biobased innovations to gain exposure and collaborate with an international community of scientists, engineers, and designers to accelerate your R&D.


Graph and compare biomaterials according to their performance properties and assess them against commercially available materials to identify potential market-fit. *Feature coming soon


Search the user directory by industry or discipline to find world-leading innovators from our 6000+ community across 50 countries.


Sign up to the Materiom platform for free access to thousands of biomaterial recipes, analytical tools, and a global network of experts.
