Using our IP-filed extraction and manufacturing process, we isolate and remove the cellulose fibrous material from rice straw and husk biomass by breaking down the complex cellulose into its simplest form.
The pulp is then blended with the latex from unripe papaya skins, extracted using a method that does not damage the fruit (so that the fruits can still be sold at the markets), and moulded into packaging products which, thanks to the protease enzymes in the papaya latex, rapidly degrade into compost when they come into contact with moisture and heat.
These novelty processes are probably a first in the world and has been recognised by leading authorities, including:
From the complete manufacturing process, the packaging products rapidly degrade into compost within 6 months when they come into contact with moisture and heat.
Our CEO, Ramaness Parasuraman, says, “Our product is protected by two intellectual properties, one of which relates to the distinct competitive advantage in the low-cost novelty formulation in delignifying the cellulose fibres, and the other to low-cost of papain-protease enzymatic impregnation to accelerate the composting rate with lower CO2 emissions.”
Global use of plastic and polystyrene has increased in recent decades, which takes thousands of years to biodegrade and ultimately cause environmental damage. Corporations around the world are under legal pressure to reduce their use of such materials, which is why the solution to these problems lies in the use of biodegradable products.
