Molly Morse

CEO, Mango Materials

If we think of where recycling was 40 years ago and we think of how far we’ve come on that front, how far compost still has to go, I think things like dry fermentation is really interesting.

Molly Morse is excited about the future of compostables. As CEO and Co-founder of Mango Materials, Morse is working to produce biodegradable plastics made from waste biogas that are economically competitive with conventional oil-based plastics. Morse is a bioplastics and biocomposites engineer with experience in construction management and has contributed to multiple patents. After consulting in clean technology, she decided to start Mango Materials based off her research and IP from the biocomposites/bioplastics group at Stanford University.

Morse received her Ph.D. in Civil & Environmental Engineering from Stanford University, and her B.S. in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Cornell University.
