A sugarcane plant consists of 75-80% stalk which is used for cane-juice extraction and the rest 20-25% is agricultural residue which is burnt. The practice of burning sugarcane waste is rampant in at least ten sugarcane-growing districts in India. An acre of sugarcane produces around 4000 tonnes of waste which is usually burnt by sugar mills and farmers during the harvest season. The amount of smoke and ashes generated from these fires is massive and the health hazards posed are almost strenuous to fathom. The power of innovation and creativity led to the introduction of EnvoPAP. Locally sourced agricultural-waste from sugarcane, wheat straw and wild grass fibres which were earlier being burnt, now blend together to create the fibres of our premium quality paper. EnvoPAP’s initiative not just prevents downcycling but also repurposes waste.
We started EnvoPAP 4 years ago seeing both a need for sustainable paper and packaging alternatives and an opportunity to save the planet from deforestation, air and land pollution. Emblematic of the “take, make, dispose” world we live in, EnvoPAP tries to create a circular materials solution that proves the ability to create high quality innovations using waste materials.
