We extract natural fibres from banana tree waste using a process patented by the University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, as well as obtaining two by-products: pulp and water. The natural fibre itself is destined for sectors such as textiles or bioplastics, while the pulp is intended for the construction sector or even aquaculture.
