We're excited to share some developments from our latest production batch of fibers from pineapple.🍍🍍


Last week, Julian and Niklas achieved our best results yet in producing a new batch of cellulose fibers. By adjusting the consistency of our process, which involves the ratio of pineapple plant mass to the volume of digestion solution, we've made significant strides:


🙏 A 25% increase in cellulose yield compared to our previous benchmarks.


♒ Reduced fresh water usage by 14%, making our process even more eco-friendly.


⚗ Chemical use cut down by 40%, marking a major step in our commitment to minimizing environmental impact.


Moreover, we've managed to produce cellulose samples for a variety of tests, including grinding trials with clients. 🤝 


In regions like Costa Rica, where over 4.5 million tons of pineapple plant waste are generated annually on 40,000 hectares of land, the disposal of this agricultural by-product poses a significant challenge. Due to the plant's thick wax layer, making composting difficult, these residues are often burned using harmful chemicals, negatively affecting both nature and human health. At eco:fibr, we see these residues not as waste but as untapped resources, extending the value chain of pineapple plants in a sustainable and meaningful manner. 🌎🍍 


For a world where plant residues are not wasted but understood as a valuable resource. With excessive agricultural waste contributing to environmental issues extending the value chain of pineapple plants in a meaningful way, eliminating harmful disposal practices.


Stay tuned for more updates on LinkedIn and Instagram as we continue our journey towards sustainability and innovation! 💚✨
