What is Green Polyethylene?
Polyethylene is normally produced from fossil raw materials, such as oil or natural gas. The Green Polyethylene is a plastic made from a renewable vegetable raw material, ethanol, extracted from sugar cane.
Green Polyethylene guarantees the same characteristics as petrochemical Polyethylene in terms of its functionality and recyclability.
The Virtuous Re-Production Circle of the CoLibri Eco Cover
1. Sugar can; as it grows absorbs Co2 from the atmosphere
2. From the processing of the sugar cane, ethanol is produced
