PYRATEX® element family is created with banana agri-waste from the banana plants cultivated for the food industry.
Banana agri-waste fiber is naturally absorbent, biodegradable, and allergen-free with an overall low impact on the environment as the banana plant can grow on the same spot year after year. It also needs little water and requires no fertilisers or pesticides in order to grow. It also allows local farmers to have an additional income stream.
There is a long tradition in India of burning agricultural waste: when harvesting the banana tree, leaves and trunks are burned. This produces a high CO2 level, released into the atmosphere. However, by using banana agri-waste as fiber, PYRATEX® avoids CO2 emissions that have a negative impact on the environment.
