Bamboo is a fast growing plant - consumes low water and is highly resilient. Fibers from Bamboo are long and are ideal for various applications from paper to fabric. We adopt this fiber in combination with other bio fibers to develop various practical products and solutions.
Long fiber of bamboo is ideal for paper production. This form of paper contributes to positive Eco Impact by multiple means - economic opportunities for under prevailed communities (UNSDG-1), No Deforestation (FSC Certified), Low Water consumption, Low carbon footprint.
Fabric made from bamboo are ecofriendly replacement for cotton and polyester. This is due to the fact that Bamboo fiber has a positive Eco Impact and resource consumption compared to alternatives. We are successfully able to blend bamboo yarns with other similar materials such as banana tree fiber to create interesting blends.
Banana plant (Scientific name: Musa acuminate) not only gives delicious fruit but it also provides textile fiber, the banana fiber which is also known as banana silk. Banana fiber is a natural bast fiber which has wide range of uses in handicraft product developments such as mat, rope and twines. A small portion of the pseudo stem is used for making products. The rest becomes compost.

Bio-based polymers are defined as materials for which at least a portion of the polymer consists of material produced from renewable raw materials. These materials are bio based, biodegradable / compostable and are ecofriendly.
Poly Lactic Acid (PLA)
PLA stands for Polylactic Acid. Made from renewable resources such as corn starch or sugar cane, it's a natural polymer designed to substitute widely used petroleum-based plastics like PET (polyethene terephthalate). They are designed to work with standard extrusion and molding machines.
Polybutylene succinate (PBS)
BioPBS is a biodegradable and compostable bioplastic material which can be used as a barrier on paper products such as cups and bowls
Bio Polymers are used in tableware that are 100% compostable. They have low environmental impact and contribute to the circular economy.
Bio Polymers are used as lining material instead of PE or PP. It can provide good moisture barrier when lined properly with a substrate material such as paper board.
Many biopolymers can be used for regenerative medicine, tissue engineering, drug delivery, and overall medical applications due to their mechanical properties. They provide characteristics like wound healing, and catalysis of bio-activity, and non-toxicity.
Many Bio Polymers are 3D print compatible. This enables us to create intricate designs and shapes with minimal material waste. This also enables bionic design and advanced modelling and prototyping.

Mulch Films are used in farming to reduce weed and insects. These can enhance crop growth and conserve water consumption. However, traditional plastic mulch films do not biodegrade and have to be removed or it will degrade soil quality. However, BioFlex can be configured to composed specially according to specific soil conditions.
Bio Flex films can be used to seal other bio compatible materials such as BioMi+ and other bio polymers.
Through a fibrillation process the cellulose fibers are separated into a three dimensional network of microfibrils with a large surface area. These entangled fibrils are called microfibrillated cellulose (MFC).
Micro fibrillated Cellulose provides unique opportunities in sustainable packaging. It reduces the material weight required by increasing its strength while contributing to interesting barrier properties such as Oxygen barrier, etc.
MFB Coatings in substrates provides numerous advantages such as reduced coat weight, reduced permeability (improved barrier), elimination of precoat, improved gloss, etc.
Cellulose is an insoluble dietary fiber and can be used as a vegan, gluten- and fat free additive. Micro-crystalline cellulose is already widely used in the food industry, micro fibrillated cellulose offers new possibilities. Due to its pH stability (2 – 12) and high salt tolerance, it can be used as a thickener for a wide range of foods and beverages. The natural additive is also able to stabilize suspensions and emulsions.
