The Fruit Paper
The new eco-friendly range of paper made using process residues from organic products
• Uses process residues from organic products to replace up to 15% of virgin tree pulp;
• FSC certified;
• produced with 100% green energy;
• contains 40% post-consumer recycled waste;
• GMO free;
• carbon footprint reduced bt 20% using by-products and 100% green energy;
• unavoidable Co2 emission neutralized.
The process residues from organic products
By-products from grape, citrus, corn, olives, coffee, kiwi fruits, almonds, lavender and cherries which would normally be processed as fillers in animal food and fertilisers, used as logs for burning or simply dumped in landfill.
Method of Degradation
Bamboo fibre bio-degrades within a natural environment in 3-8 months’ time, and only undergoes this process if the following condition exist:
- buried within the ground, it will naturally bio-degrade
- bacteria within the natural, and active earth, allows it to decompose
- burning it into CO2 and H2O does not cause any pollution to the environment
Bamboo fibre is a stable material and only bio-degrades should these conditions exist.
We suggest not washing Bamboo fibre by machine or hand. But it is absolutely fine to carry it under rainy days. Bamboo fibre will become unstable and the tear-strength ability will become weak when it is in 100% wet condition.
But due to its dry-fast ability, it evaporates quickly and the tear-strength ability will become strong again when it is in 100% dry condition.
Performance advantages of Bamboo fibre over Cotton:
Anti-Bacteria: 3 times more effective than Cotton
Anti-Static: 12 times more effective than Cotton
Anti-Odour: 30% more effective than Cotton
Comparison with Cotton
In comparison with cotton, Bamboo fibre requires significantly less cleaning processes before being processed into fibre. These cleaning stages are renowned for their heavy usage of water and chemical treatments, which obviously cause pollution to the environment, again emphasising the ecological credentials of Bamboo fibre.
The new generation of Green Plastic
PLA (Polylattic Acid) is a biodegradable and bioactive thermoplastic aliphatic polyester derived from renewable biomass, typically from fermented plant starch such as from corn, cassava, sugarcane or sugar beet pulp.
PLA had the second highest consumption volume of any bioplastic of the world purposes.
PLA can also be used as a decomposable packaging material, either cast, injection-molded, or spun.Cups and bags have been made from this material. In the form of a film, it shrinks upon heating, allowing it to be used in shrink tunnels. It is useful for producing loose-fill packaging, compost bags, food packaging, and disposable tableware. In the form of fibers and nonwoven fabrics, PLA also has many potential uses, for example as upholstery, disposable garments, awnings, feminine hygiene products, and diapers. Thanks to its bio-compatibility and biodegradability, PLA has also found ample interest as a polymeric scaffold for drug delivery Poly (lactic acid) or polylactic acid or polylactide (PLA)
SOY-BASED INK is, as the name implies, made from soybeans.
The oil is refined and then mixed with other environmentally friendly compounds such as natural resins and waxes. The fine bright colors that can be produced with soy-based inks are a result of the soy oil – it is much clearer and less, well, “oily” than petroleum based inks. Soy ink is a frequent choice of newspapers and other mass produced documents since it can produce such bright colors, and it is substantially more cost effective than its oil-based cousins.
SOY-BASED INK is an excellent alternative to petroleum or oil-based inks. Not only is this ink great for the environment and your eco-friendly business agenda, but it can actually be used to produce brighter, more vibrant colors. The end result is an eco-friendly and visually appealing creative every time, which says a lot about your business and demonstrates that you care about the environment – especially when combined with recycled or FSC certified paper.
We think about the Planet
It is the new frontier of packaging, is our way of thinking about the Planet Earth, from the search for sustainable materials to the optimization of the production cycle.
We are FSC® certified, we use paper from forests managed in a responsible way.
Solutia offers pProp65 compliant products and PVC Phthalate free products.
We work also different types of paper made whit post-consumer waste and 100% recyclable
