Waste = Abundant Fiber Resources
These five crops alone offer more than 250M tons of fiber per year! = 2.5x the current global fiber demand
The Agraloop Bio-Refinery transforms food crop waste into high-value natural fiber products in a cost competitive and scaleable way, providing sustainable and regenerative benefits. The Agraloop can utilize a range of feed stocks including oilseed hemp and oilseed flax straw as well as pineapple leaves, banana trunks and sugar cane bark.
The Agraloop - turning problem into solution!
1. TROPICAL CROP RESIDUES ARE ABUNDANT, FAR TOO MUCH TO COMPOST EFFECTIVELY… THIS “WASTE” IS SIMPY LEFT TO ROT CREATING SIGNIFICANT METHANE POLLUTION AND CROP DISEASE.
MILLION TONS of Banana waste alone, is left to rot annually.
2. CROP BURNING ATTRIBUTES TO UPWARDS OF 10% OF ALL AIR POLLUTION DEATHS EVERY YEAR.
MILLION ACRES of rice straw are burned yearly in India every year. Additionally over 1.5 Milliom acres of oilseed flax residues are burned in North America alone.
WE LOOK AT THESE CROP RESIDUES AS VALUABLE RESOURCES, RATHER THAN WASTE…
Turning “problem” into solution by converting waste into valuable resources.
