The “Bio” prefix means biological; relating to biology and “Olive” is a small oval fruit with a hard stone and bitter flesh, green when unripe and bluish-black when ripe. “Biolive” comes from re-living of the olive industry’s wastes as biopolymers.
Due to Biolive’s unique technology, every agricultural waste can be used in Biolive’s patented technology. Regarding olive pits, only even Türkiye has 500.000 tons olive pits per year. Türkiye, Spain, Italy, Morocco, and Greece are the largest producers of olives.
BioPura’s benefits are bifold. From the olive industry perspective, Biolive closes the loop by upcycling their industrial waste which has no food value and no use area in any industry. Also, from the plastic industry’s perspective, Biolive provides maximum use of renewable resources for the plastic industry, lowering carbon footprints and helping brands to comply with the regulations.
