Sustainable Biocapsules

Transforming waste into tress

Leftovers from the production process of collagen capsules from the pharmaceutical industry and waste from the cellulose industry (sludge and husks) have been transformed into a new seed "packaging" material that brings various benefits ranging from protecting the seed from the sun and insects, or even nutrition through the natural composition of the capsules for germination and applied to reforestation using an automatic dispersal device (drone). The technology contributes to "ESG", promoting the circular economy and its applicability in reforesting degraded areas in the Amazon - Brazil.
