Banana fibre is biodegradable, which means it will break down in landfills when used to make food packaging. Its manufacture is a chemical-free, zero-waste procedure that makes use of a product that would have otherwise gone to waste.
In cardboard cartons with plastic liners, bananas are packed as full hands, part hands, or clusters. Between each full hand, plastic slip-sheets are utilised, and the carton’s bottom is lined with absorbent paper.
To facilitate collection and delivery for transportation, cartons are staked into pallets.Banana leaves are a common kind of packaging. These large, glossy leaves are the ideal food saver since they retain moisture and are difficult to decompose.
The Global Banana fibre packaging market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
In Egypt, Papyrus Australia creates banana fibre clamshells from leftover agricultural materials. The “world’s first” completely banana fibre-based clamshell is being introduced by agricultural waste fibre technologists Papyrus Australia.
It was made in a Sharqiyah, Egypt, moulded fibre packaging plant. Banana waste is a superb natural fibre with special qualities that lend itself to processing using their copyrighted intellectual property and, ultimately, for moulding to create food-grade packaging, eliminating plastic packaging.
This processing may be done by using their proprietary intellectual property.They make use of every scrap from the banana plantation, with the majority of the fibre coming from the trunk of the banana trees.
Aside from producing methane gas, which contributes to global warming, this material is typically left to decompose in the plantation.
The company’s proprietary technology, he continues, prevents natural deterioration and related methane gas emissions from entering the atmosphere. They then describe how the company recovered garbage from a banana farm.
One such product is the moulded fibre food packaging meant to replace plastic packaging. Some others are natural liquid fertiliser (also known as MUSA), paper and cardboard and kraft paper products, banana veneer to replace timber veneer as a decorative element in furniture, flooring, ceiling tiles, panel board of all densities, including MDF panelboard, and fibrous agricultural products to replace peat for deficient sandy soils.
