Inside the Sustainable Naturacell® Process
Naturacell® begins as Cellulose. Cellulose production is a sustainable process that uses trees or cotton grown and harvested specifically for this purpose.
Among the environmental benefits of the process:
- The trees absorb carbon dioxide and emit oxygen through photosynthesis.
- Very little is wasted during Cellulose conversion, with the bark of the trees used for fuel.
Watch our video for a closer look at how we turn Cellulose into Naturacell—a sustainable polymer that’s ideal for a wide variety of green-minded products.
Processing & Secondary Operations
It’s Easy to Make Naturacell® Part of Your Product
Naturacell® isn’t just better for the environment. It’s better for your business, too:
- No special tooling
- No capital investments
- No processing headaches
- No learning curve
Plastics manufacturers can get started with Naturacell today. It can be processed via injection molding, extrusion and vacuum/thermoforming. It’s also well suited for secondary fabrication including solvent polishing, cutting, cementing, drilling, vacuum forming, metalizing and decorating.
ECO-FRIENDLY TIPS: AT WORK
Minimize manufacturing material waste. Since you must often dispose of items such as oil, solvents and acids, take steps to minimize your use of them – use fewer solvents to do the same job, use less toxic solvents and switch to a detergent solution.
