PROBLEM

Industry generates 480 million tons of plastics annually, 91% of which are not recycled, causing massive contamination of soils and oceans. These plastics can take hundreds of years to degrade, and in doing so generate micro and nanoparticles that are harmful to every ecosystem, including soil, water, air, plants, animals and humans. In addition, the industry is responsible for 3.8% of global CO2 emissions.

SOLUTION

We are currently developing a 100% organic and biodegradable biopolymer from hemp biomass as a sustainable alternative to traditional plastic. The process involves R&D to obtain a material with physicochemical properties specifically designed to meet the demands of various applications.

Applications include the design of eco-friendly packaging, innovative packaging and consumer products that not only meet quality standards, but also contribute positively to environmental care.

IMPACT

The implementation of the biopolymer reduces the carbon footprint by using hemp as a renewable source. Moreover, being 100% biodegradable, it helps to reduce the accumulation of plastic waste in the environment, facilitating the transition to a bioeconomy model with biodegradable plastic substitutes.

Our analysis indicates that bio-attributed plastics from hemp will reduce gas emissions by 25% to 65% per ton of material, compared to fossil options. We estimate that our solution could reduce emissions by more than 50%. In terms of non-biodegradable waste, we expect a positive impact of 45% to 80% on the volume generated globally on an annual basis.
