The reinvention of plastic

Innovation and eco-sustainability for a better future.
Welcome to Kanèsis.

Plastic pollution
is a thing of the past

Kanèsis is an Italian enterprise pioneer in the field of bio-plastics. Thanks to its innovative productive process, Kanèsis develops a 100% sustainable thermoplastic material by replacing the synthetic additives and colorants, added in most bio-based plastics, with agriculture by-products and surplus. Italian hemp shives and inflorescences, tomatoes, pomegranates and pruned orange trees, together with the top-notch PLA, compose Kanèsis’ products and services. All of them have different qualities but a common identity: natural texture, warm and earth tone colors, excellent mechanical properties.

Kanèsis’ vision is a petroleum-free plastic world, where materials are 100% produced from agricultural by-products and surplus, no longer considered as “waste”, totally in line with the circular economy principles.

Studies and research

Our studies show that the use of agricultural by-products, instead of lignin, improves the mechanical aspects of composite materials. Lignin is indeed widely added to Wood-plastic composites (WPCs) – composite materials made of wood fiber/wood flour and thermoplastic(s) such as PE, PP, PVC, or PLA – to improve the melt flowability of the wood flour. However, the lignin reduces the elasticity and tensile strength of the composite because of its incompatibility with most thermoplastic polymers: being inert, it creates small vacuums in the material.
