Air-buffer material made with biomass plastic

Air-buffer material made with biomass plastic

In order to reduce carbon-dioxide emissions and cut back on the use of petroleum resources, an air-buffer material is made with biomass plastic film produced from plant plastic whose raw ingredient consists of molasses, a residual by-product of the process of extracting edible sugar from sugarcane. This product can even be reused and recycled. Machines for producing the buffer material have also been developed by the company. The fact that users can produce just the amount of air-buffer material that they need on-site thanks to a system for renting machines that eliminates the need to make an initial investment is also an advantage.
