Every 60 seconds, over 700 tonnes of plastic is created. Meanwhile, enormous quantities of cannabis and hemp biomass end up going to waste. Truly Green Plastic™, an innovative Canadian start-up, solves one problem with the other, by using their internationally-claimed intellectual property to turn hemp or cannabis waste into fully-biodegradable plastic. The company has repeatedly been recognized by its peers as one of (if not the most) exciting early-stage companies on the planet, and was recently invited to present at the American Chemical Society.
Caason Group and Truly Green Plastic™ have formed a partnership and will set sights on developing a mobile pilot plant by 2022 for the Australian market.
Craig Astill, CEO and MD of Caason Group, has also joined the Advisory Board of Truly Green Plastic™ to aid their entry into the Australian market.
Craig Astill said: “Given my passion for sustainability and innovation and our strong links with the industrial hemp sector, though companies such as FFLI, this Truly Green Plastic™ partnership is an exciting development.”
