Cutlery from agricultural waste

The directives on disposable products and single-use plastics have in recent years prompted the search for more sustainable and circular solutions that would help manufacturers in the production of biodegradable and compostable utensils.
PlantSwitch has developed a technology that recycles agricultural residues and turns them into a plant-based resin that can be used to make products to replace petroleum-based plastics.
Leftovers from major food production such as rice huskswheat straw and agave are processed into a bio-polymer resin in the form of compostable pellets.
Processable with all equipment currently used for plastics, the pellets are moulded into disposable cutlery that is compostable in six months under both aerobic and anaerobic condition.
