Naturally, leaves and most biomaterials degrade within a shelf lifespan of three days and are discarded as waste, according to Tenith Adithyaa M, inventor of banana leaf technology. Banana leaf technology is a cellular eco-friendly technology that preserves leaves and organic biomaterials for a year without the use of any chemicals. This technology enhances the leaves' physical properties thus making a viable biodegradable material alternative to both plastic and paper.

 

Increased in their durability, stretchability and crushability, preserved leaves can resist extreme temperatures and hold more weight than their original nature. The preservation capability of leaves with natural green color is for a period of up to one year and an extended shelf lifespan of three years without its natural color.

 

The technology enhances cells, strengthens cell walls of leaves and prevents pathogenic agents from destroying the cells. These processed biomaterials are biodegradable, healthy, pathogenic resistant, human-friendly and completely eco-friendly. A viable replacement for disposables, it prevents the destruction of around 7 billion trees annually.
