About Papkot

We create the first true alternative to plastic packaging by transforming natural abundant materials found all over the earth's crust.

In 2020, Manuel Milliery created the company Papkot to commercialize the fruit of his accelerated discovery software.
Papkot has developed the first at-scale coating technology to provide paper with the same properties as plastic, converting silicon, the most abundant material on Earth, and cellulose, the most abundant biopolymer, into a nanostructured material to remove plastic from single-use packaging. 


The goal is to make single-use plastic packaging obsolete in the future.

The story behind Papkot

Manuel Milliery, the founder, explains the origins of Papkot at a TEDx conference about TO DARE.

"What we do is to build a better future by solving a gigantic problem, sure, but more importantly, to inspire others to grow and flourish impact-driven businesses."
– Manuel Milliery, Founder and CEO
