Agoprene is a materialtech startup based in Norway. Agoprene is developing furniture foam from plant fibers to help the furniture industry reduce their need for petrochemicals.
Globally, furniture foam, which is derived from petroleum, accounts for 105 million tonnes of CO2 emissions annually. One armchair for example, emits an average of 43 kg CO2e, almost half of which is due to furniture foam.
Agoprene's foam is completely free of petrochemicals. We believe finding planet-friendly alternatives isn’t a challenge; it’s an opportunity.
