Recent ENVS alum collaborates with Material and Product Studies alum to create biodegradable plastic

ENVS alum Justin Lebuhn along with David Crinnion and Tanner Stickling, both Material and Product Studies alum launched Portland-based Algotek in 2018. They’re marketing the company’s biodegradable plastic as an alternative material for packaging and other items that are used only once. The group participated in the university’s 2017 Sustainable Invention Immersion Week, an annual entrepreneurial boot camp and competition for green business ideas.
