The Waste Crisis

Field of Wheat

Crop Residue Waste

Indian farmers are left with around 350 million tons of crop residue after harvest. As time is limited for sowing the next crop and labor and machinery are costly, the farmers have no choice but to burn this crop residue waste.
Environment Pollution

Plastic Waste

A single Indian generates around 6 kg of plastic waste per year, amounting to a total nationwide waste generation of 9.5 million tons. Only 9% is recycled, the rest is either burned, landfilled or thrown away in rivers, oceans and lakes lasting for next 500 years, contaminating the environment.

Our Solution - The Circular Technology

Crop Residue

Crop residue waste is sourced from farmers and agro-food industries and cellulose is extracted from it

CelluBlend

Cellulose is blended with bio-based additives and binders using a proprietary CelluBlend Technology.

Products

Bioplastics and Biocomposites are made from Cellulose. The materials are used to develop flexible and rigid products.

End of Life

Products readily biodegrade even in natural environment into organic matter which can be used as manure by farmers.
