The process does not involve any cutting or harm to the trees, making it a sustainable alternative to traditional disposable plates made from plastic or paper.

Once the leaves are pressed into the desired shape, they are naturally sterilized through exposure to sunlight. This process removes any bacteria or impurities from the leaves and ensures the plates are safe for food usage.

Naturelia bagasse plates manufacturing process involves the following steps:

  • Collection and cleaning: The bagasse is collected and cleaned of any impurities or debris.
  • Pulping: The bagasse is pulped to form a uniform mixture. Water and natural binders are added to the mixture to enhance its strength and moldability.
  • Molding: The pulped mixture is molded into the desired shape using heat and pressure. The plates are then dried in the sun or in a kiln to remove any remaining moisture.
  • Finishing: The dried plates are finished with a food-grade coating to improve their strength and make them resistant to moisture and grease.
