Bell peppers and paprikas are eaten, but unfortunately the plant (stem, leaf and foliage) is not. As soon as it no longer bears fruit, it disappears in the trash. Based on new legislation and regulations, this wood-like residual flow must be collected and, if possible, processed into a new product. But what on earth can you do with it?
We have delved into this and are investigating the possibilities via two tracks. On the one hand, we are experimenting with the use of the highly shredded pulp (until it is almost fiber) in products. On the other hand, we are looking at options for using the shredded wood as a non-acidic ground cover.
Of course, success on either track means that the solution can also be applied to the residual flows from other cultures. And hopefully also for our great love, the pepper plant :-)
We will keep you informed...
