After more than 10 years of research and development, YFY Corp. reports that it has successfully moved NPulp from green chemistry concept to reality.
The paper, which converts straw pulp into paper, uses a proprietary enzymatic process that eliminates the use of harsh chemicals when converting straw to straw pulp.
YFY Corp. plans to take advantage of the more than 600 million tons of agricultural straw biomass available in China. Currently, after Chinese farmers harvest their crops, they are left with large amounts of residual straw, of which more than 90 percent is burned off to clear the fields for more planting.
“This is an unprecedented opportunity to show green chemistry in action in ways that benefit all stakeholders,” said Ronald Allen, president of Mobius105, the exclusive distributor of NPulp. NPulp is currently being produced and is available and shipped per customer demand.
