Company Summary

Since its founding in 2009, Hemicellulose., Ltd. has supported Japan's die & mold manufacturers and material manufacturers. In 2019, we started a bioplastic business to further strengthen manufacturing in Japan.
Our goal is not to grow or cut down new plants for making plant-based plastics, but rather to utilize resources that already exist but are not used. Utilizing discarded resources, we commercialize bioplastic resins that are 100% derived from plants and marine products, enabling local production for local consumption, and gradually replace petroleum-derived products in the world.
