lentils

We produce PHBV pellets and we call it LENTILS because as the name suggests, they are tiny, sustainable, high value and nature’s gift to us. LENTILS are 100% biodegradable and customisable which makes it the ideal choice for various applications.

Applications

01.

— Packaging

These pellets have been customised for the flexible packaging market as they can be turned into films and sheets.

02.

— Injection moulding

These pellets have been customised for mouldable products like cups, toys, jars, switches, bottles etc.

03.

— 3D Printing

3d printing, 3d, technology

These pellets have been customised to be converted to filament for 3D printing purposes.

04.

— Fibers & Non-woven

yarn, wool, cords

These pellets have been customised to undergo melt-spinning to produce sustainable fibers which are alternatives to traditional polyester.

05.

— Micro-beads

PHAs are humectants, which allows them to attract moisture to the skin, improve hydration and give antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits when used as skin exfoliant.

Understanding Sustainability

 To understand sustainability we need to understand the difference between biodegradable, bio-based, non-biodegradable, fossil-based and recyclable.

Biodegradable

01.

Biodegradable simply means that the material can go through a chemical process where microorganisms in the environment convert the material back into natural substances like carbon dioxide, biomass and water.

Biobased

02.

Biobased refers to where the material comes from, it can be partially or fully biobased. Conventional plastics use non-renewable resources from the earth. Biobased plastics come from renewable biomass, meaning plants.

Non-biodegradable

03.

These kinds of materials are not capable of being broken down by the action of living organisms and end up in our environment for millions of years.

waste, pollution, garbage

Fossil-based

04.

Also known as traditional plastics, these are polymers made from petrochemicals which means they use non-renewable source of energy to get produced.

refinery, pump, oil pump

Recyclable

05.

Unlike popular belief, not all polymers are recyclable. Recycling is just a delayed form of havoc. Less than 10% of the plastics are recycled in the world and the rest ends up in landfills.

PHAs are biodegradable, bio-based and recyclable which makes them the most sustainable choice available. Unlike other bioplastics like PLA, we produce PHA from waste materials and by-products so we don’t create another problem like food scarcity to fight the plastic problem.

Sustainable Web

We have created a sustainable web through our process and this is how it looks:

 Our revolutionary process helps us turn waste and by-products into polymers without using any fresh source of food.

We can use:

Organic Food waste
Beer industry waste
Dairy industry waste
Sugar industry waste

Patented conversion process

Through our patented conversion process we are able to create wastes from different industries into polymers by feeding our bacterias enough so they produce a high yield of PHA polymers.

Compounding

Once we get our PHA granules, we compound them to match our consumer’s needs. We have explored some initial applications for PHA but possibilities are endless.

Existing machinery

Our pellets can be used with existing machineries which is a boon the existing manufacturers as they can still make those wonderful products without any adjustment. Only this time the products are sustainable.
