Full biodegradable pads - substituting taboos

In Bangladesh we are improving the menstrual hygiene of women and girls, which allows them to increase their social and economic participation, health and wellbeing. This year we realized 49 school campaigns reaching 8,207 girls in the age from 11-13, raised awareness at 400 mothers and fathers, trained 191 teachers with a curriculum on menstrual hygiene, launched an online platform and TV serie and developed biodegradable pads.

Bioplastic Kunstrif langs waddeneiland Griend

For the restoration of ecosystems, for example mussel beds, artificial structures are needed as starting points. To find an environmental friendly structure, Rodenburg Polymers, ENEXIO Water Technologies and Bureau Waardenburg partnered and developed the three-dimensional solid grid, the BESE-Elements.

Biodegradable flower pots

These biodegradable flower pots have been designed on added value in stead of on drop-ins, in the supply chain of the BBCT-consortium. This 100% bio-based flower pot is made by injection moulding and has great benefits: better plant growth, needs significantly less fertilizer and soil improver as the pot acts as one and it has no plastic waste. On top of that, less manpower and handling costs are needed during the planting process.

Biodegradable mussle structure

Bureau Waardenburg, Rodenburg Biopolymers and GEA 2H Water Technologies have developed a biodegradable structure specifically for use in the improvement of habitats. In contrast to many other bio-plastics, it undergoes complete breakdown without the need for composting agents. Its original application was as a structure for the recovery of musselbeds and oyster beds. In addition, several other applications in the area of water purification, sewerage treatment, aquaculture, soil aeration, reclamation and the protection of coasts and sandbanks have become apparent.
