During the ripening process, grains of rice are carefully protected by their husks, which ward off intensive UV radiation and adverse weather conditions.
Rice husks provide an incredible performance. After harvesting, they are no longer needed and have to be disposed of... an expensive process. Resysta® takes advantage of the valuable properties of the rice husks.
Every day we are inspired by nature. We are very happy to be able to put a waste product to such great use – for your benefit.
The tropical rainforests stretch across our planet like a green, living belt providing the home to countless animal and plant species, many of which have not even been discovered until today. This “green lung” stores large amounts of carbon dioxide and is essential for maintaining the earth's climate.
But saving the rainforest is easier said than done as long as the demand for tropical timber continues to grow. Our Resysta® profiles can make an important contribution to protecting the rainforest. The innovative material is absolutely free of wood, so that not a single tree has to be felled.
And that's not all: A decisive ecological advantage is the 100% recyclability of our profiles. Disposal and material recycling form a closed recycling cycle. This is how old profiles become a valuable raw material again and can be used in the production of new profiles without any loss of quality.
In cooperation with manufacturers of products made of Resysta, Resysta International has created a recycling consortium and launched a recycling cycle. The companies involved, have committed themselves to recycle residues that arise during production, such as cuttings or grinding dust and to take residues back from the stores in order to reintroduce them to the product cycle.
Waste and leftovers are shredded and returned to the production process. Despite the still young history of the Resysta material and its enormous durability, some producers are already recycling and producing some of their products from production leftovers and sections from construction. The recycling consortium is also supported by Vinylplus (www.vinylplus.eu), a voluntary sustainability development program of the European PVC industry.
