Peruvian Group Creates Compostable Plates Made Of Banana Leaves

Posted on Nov 12 2019 - 9:56am by UOG

A group of young Peruvians has launched a project called ‘Bio Plant’, which creates disposable plates and bowls made entirely from banana leaves.

With the financial sponsoring from the Innóvate Peru Program (through the Bio Challenge contest which backs the development of innovative solutions focused on sustainability), they were able to design and manufacture specialized machines – a presser, a shipper, and a die cutter – for the production of the biodegradable dishes. With the new equipment, they are able to manufacture 50,000 dishes monthly.
