Sugarcane Tube - Reduced CO2 emissions thanks to bioplasticst

How do you make plastic out of sugar cane?

The production of plastic requires the use of ethanol. While ethanol is traditionally derived from petrochemical sources, our sugarcane tubes use ethanol derived from sugarcane.As a result, the final type of plastic obtained is the same type we had before, but from a natural source instead of a petrochemical one.

What makes it better?

The primary focus here is on carbon capture. Instead of relying on non-renewable fossil fuel petrochemicals that emit carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, we utilize ethanol sourced from renewable sugar cane cultivated in Brazil, a considerable distance from the Amazon rainforest. This sugar cane cultivation largely depends on natural rainfall, making it a sustainable choice.

Can it be recycled ?

Our tubes are indeed recyclable; however, it’s important to note that the recycling process may vary depending on local council regulations, which are beyond our control.

It´s sugarcane, I can just put it in the ground ?

Unfortunately, burying it is not an option, but the focus on sustainability is in the manufacturing process. While it’s not biodegradable, it is recyclable. To recycle it, simply trim the end and ensure it’s clean before placing it in your recycling bin, as packaging that is dirty is often not accepted for recycling.
