The Eco Raw® Story

The Eco Raw® story begins with renewable, sustainably produced sugar cane which is then refined to produce blackstrap molasses and sugar. The black strap molasses is fermented to produce ethanol. This ethanol is dehydrated, at a lower temperature than a petroleum-based process, to produce ethylene which then goes through a polymerization process to produce polyethylene.

This Green polyethylene is a renewable alternative to polyethylene that can make a significant contribution to reducing the level of greenhouse gas emissions throughout the chain.

At the end of its life cycle, Turf Cushion® is 100% recyclable and can be reclaimed and turned into pellets for making everything from toys to containers to forks.
