Utsav Exim Ltd. specializes in turning fruit waste into useful and eco-friendly products. Our track record of implemented projects would demonstrate our strength in waste recycling and reuse field. We have made paper from banana waste and even orange peel waste on a commercial scale. Now we have the technology to make cartons and boxes from such waste.

Banana paper is used in two different senses: to refer to a paper made from the bark of the banana tree, mainly used for artistic purposes, or paper made from banana fiber, obtained from an industrialized process, from the stem and the non utilizable fruits. This paper can be either hand-made or made by industrialized machine.

Banana fiber is a natural fiber with high strength, which can be blended easily with cotton fiber or other synthetic fibers to produce blended fabric & textiles.

Banana Fiber also finds use in high quality security/ currency paper, packing cloth for agriculture produce, ships towing ropes, wet drilling cables etc.

The Processing steps of banana papermaking are:–

  • Gathering of Banana Stems,
  • Cutting of Materials,
  • Pulping machine (simple system using only water),
  • Drying
  • Making Paper (hand making method without any paste).

Our technology includes the scientific know-how, processes, machinery and equipment necessary to convert banana tree trunk into paper. The technology is unique and fits between the conventional pulp & paper technology and the lumber veneering and custom wood technologies.The raw material for making hand made paper could be cotton linter, tailor cuttings, hosiery waste, bast fibers (jute/ hemp etc), wheat straw, rice straw, bagasse, cotton stalk, grasses, different kind of agro and forest wastes, waste paper etc. These raw materials are easily available in villages. The technology for making handmade paper includes simplicity of operation, low cost of installation and the same equipment can produce any and many varieties of hand made paper.

Our technology of turning banana waste into paper is gearing up to go commercial. And it has several distinct market advantages a commercially viable cost structure, superior product and positive environmental benefits. Recycled Paper is made from both virgin tree-fibers and recycled fibers with one exception, and that is 100% post-consumer paper, which is made from 100%, recycled fibers. Therefore, trees are still cut to make most recycled paper.Banana papermaking seems to be the only avenue for utilizing sustainable resource most appropriately.
