WE DEVELOP SUSTAINABLE, NATURAL BIOCOMPOSITES MADE FROM AGRICULTURAL BY-PRODUCTS.
| OUR STORY
NaturLoop is a Swiss-based cleantech and material science company advocating sustainable development through the production of natural biocomposites. NaturLoop engineers biocomposites made from agricultural waste coupled with bio-based adhesives and develops the required technology to produce them on an industrial scale. The production concept is based on a unique turnkey micro-factory concept. We aim to develop innovative, commercially viable products which mitigate the continuous depletion of natural resources, while integrating local rural communities in the value chain.
Over half of the world’s tropical forests have been destroyed since the 1960’s, forcing many countries to implement logging bans, and green policies to protect the remaining natural resources. The limited availability of timber not only increased the prices of raw material but have made these countries heavily dependent on importing wood-based panels. On the other hand, Indonesia, the Philippines, and India produce over 75% of the worldwide coconut demand. Globally, 21 million tonnes of coconut husk are generated annually, in which most are burned or dumped.
Coconut Husk + Bio-based adhesive = Cocoboard
Cocoboard® is an innovative natural panel made from the by-product of the coconut harvest, and bio-based adhesive.
As a technology provider, NaturLoop offers a full package solution including the production equipment and processing, bio-based adhesive and support services required to produce Cocoboard® on an industrial scale. The final result is an affordable and sustainable product, that fulfils local and international demand.
