It was founded in 2015 and is based in Peoria, Illinois. NFW invents and manufactures shockingly sustainable products from plants. Beginning with inherently circular, natural ingredients, NFW is making a material-rich, plastic-free future possible. It is fundamentally changing the way materials are made with our novel technologies for bonding, mixing, and forming plant-based inputs into sustainable, high-performance materials. NFW envisions a world that doesn’t rely on plastic, where abundant natural materials enable people and the planet to thrive together.
