More than 500 Million Tons of crop waste is produced in India every year. About 350 Million tons of this gets discarded or burnt creating no value to these renewable resources, and instead resulting in pollution. Especially crop-waste burnt on the farms have higher risk of releasing green house gases such as methane and nitrous oxide.
Instead of polluting the planet, these crop waste can be rich source of organic carbon that be locked into various useful products.
At Spectalite, our biocomposites are made with crop-waste and fast-renewables from farm, factory and forest. These do not result in tree felling and hence preserve biodiversity. Further, this approach creates a positive socio-economic impact while addressing the ecological problem fundamentally.
