EF Polymer has been named one of Asia Pacific's top 25 startups as per APAC 25 Report by Cleantech Group. It has created a biodegradable polymer from food waste that improves crop water and fertilizer retention. After completing successful point-of-care testing in South Africa, New Zealand, and the United States, the company intends to scale supply in India and Japan and expand its global reach.

Other applications for the polymer include sustainable ice packs and organic sanitary pads, both of which the company intends to pursue in the coming years. EF Polymer reduces water and fertilizer consumption while increasing yields without the use of harmful chemicals.

A UV polymerization process employs biowaste such as fruit and vegetable peels, as well as other binding agents, to create the polymer. Fasal Amrit, the resulting product, can store water for up to three years. When applied to soil, the polymer retains and releases water based on soil saturation, thereby preventing leaching. The process of expansion and contraction also improves soil aeration.

Cleantech Group conducts research, consults, and hosts events to help catalyze opportunities for long-term growth powered by innovation. It provides clients with access to the trends, companies, and people shaping the future, as well as the tailored advice and support businesses, require to engage in external innovation.

Industries are making decisive shifts toward a more digitized, decarbonized, and resource-efficient industrial future. Its services provide corporate change makers, investors, governments, and stakeholders from across the ecosystem with the support they need to thrive in this fast-changing and uncertain future, from initial strategy to final deals.
