The ECOR technology was first developed in partnership with the United State's Department of Agriculture, as part of a decade long program by the Forest Products Lab, to create a high-performance building material from cellulose waste fiber that was free of any toxic binding agents and offered the potential to substantially increase the types of waste recycled from urban, farm and forest sources.
Applied for and later received first patent for the ECOR technology.
With rapidly growing demand in Europe for solutions that enable closed-loops, zero waste and the circular economy, a subsidiary is launched to service regional customers and to develop ECOR manufacturing facilities that will enable partners to convert their waste into ECOR and produce ECOR-based materials and products.
ECOR became C2C certified and was provided an innovation award by the Cradle to Cradle Product Institute.
Commercial scale manufacturing and post-production begins at the ECOR Facility in Tavnik, Serbia.
Recognizing the heart, soul and industrial center for the Circular Economy is based in the Netherlands, a regional subsidiary was launched for the BeNeLux market, led by Cradle to Cradle Pioneer and entrepreneur, Eric Logtens.
Formally joined the Ellen MacArthur Foundation's exclusive collaborative network, the CE 100, as an innovation partner to enable circular economy solutions
Plans were announced to develop a Global R&D Facility located in Venlo, Netherlands which would include a Fast Prototyping Lab capable of providing a range waste conversion testing, fiber alloy developments and post-fabrication of circular-economy enabling product designs with regional partners and enterprising designers.
