  • Brief description about the student start-up

Naturoplast is an initiative to inculcate an idea of biodegradable plastics from underutilized natural resources. The newspapers and TV channels are flooded with the harms and problems the environment is facing. And one of the causes is pollution due to plastic usage. The under utilisation of the natural resources is another big problem. The production of the bananas is quite high and India ranks first among other countries in the production. Even after its usage and the export, still the bananas get underutilised. So, to reduce and curb the problem, the best possible way is the value addition. Nanowrap is one such product made from green banana. It is an innovative bioplastic wrap with improved physical and mechanical properties. Being cost effective, biodegradable, water soluble and high in mechanical strength “Nanowrap” possesses a high impact both socially and environmentally. It’s an ecofriendly package and a Green Initiative to build a Swacch Bharat.

  • Startups entrepreneurial journey from ideation to prototype or commercialization along-with 2-3 high resolution photographs

Starting from just an idea to till date, it’s really been a long interesting and experience rich journey. It started a year back with the aim to recognise the problem and the use of already existing underutilized natural resources. With a lot of brainstorming and discussions, the major problem identified was the Plastic usage and its pollution. It’s been seen that already many steps have taken which had many cons again. Even studies shows that the biodegradable plastics have few shortcomings that “Naturoplast” startup have tried to overcome with the development of nanobioplastics with improved physical and mechanical properties.
