We are in business to re-shape the co-existence between nature and human.
Revolwe® EVO Traction Series is a result of our rigid R&D,
This high performance traction pad is bio-based
with ingredients sourced from waste in the food industry.
Even though we select materials with the high sustainability standards...
Everything has an impact, everything!
From R&D to finished product in your hand.
When the sugarcane is harvested it goes through a centrifugation process to extract the juice.
The first raw juice is used to make edible sugar.
The liquid and the biproduct, molass, that remains after this process is used for making green ethanol
which then is dehydrated into ethylene.
The ethylene is polymerized, this is the key to create a high-performance foam for traction pads just like Revolwe Bio-EVO. After these procedures the remains is called bagass.
The bagass are used to make electricity and in its final stage is reused as a supportive fertilizer in the sugarcane farming. Using this residue, the fertilize consumption is decreased by 60%.
Not only are we using renewable resources with great social and environmental impact in many areas of the process.
It also results in that we are binding CO2 from the air in our production process.
Traditional EVA are releasing +1.84 kgC02 eq/kg. compared to our material, Revolwe® Bio-EVO,
that's only having an impact of -2.09 kgC02 eq/kg.
Revolwe® Bio-EVO-process is collecting more CO2 than it is releasing.
Product packaging is made from recycled cardboard and it is printed with ink that is made from Algae-based ink.
This ink is a safe, renewable, carbon negative (-200%), black pigment derived from waste algae supply. Algae by-product material is transformed into small, black pigments.
The ink is a by-product algae material grown at Earthrise Nutritionals, located in Imperial County, California. Algae is grown using sunlight, water, carbon dioxide and nutrients. Algae, such as spirulina, are grown for a blue colorant called phycocyanin, which is extracted and used as a natural food colorant. The remaining material is considered algae by-product. This left-over material is used to make a bio-based black pigment.
The environmental impact of this ink is
98% Water reduction, 200% CO2 eq reduction, 100% petroleum feedstock reduction.
* Total Carbon Footprint Calculations made by using The 2030 carbon footprint for products (CFP) calculator are calculated on average emissions factors for materials, energy consumption and transportation based on product category, total weight of product, the weight of unique materials used in each product (or packaging) part, location and distances between supplier, manufacturing facility and distribution center and modes of transport between each as well as the source of energy used in production. Carbon Footprint calculations made by The 2030 Calculator cover the cradle-to-gate phases of a typical product life-cycle assessment which are under the operational control of the product manufacturer. These calculations are not intended to provide an exhaustive assessment of a product’s GHG footprint as would be the purpose of a full product life-cycle assessment. Please find a local LCA certified consultant here. The emissions factors used in the calculations have been sourced from a variety of validated, third-party open data sources (see methodology ) and include a blend of CO2 and (GWP normalized) CO2e values, with final carbon footprint calculated in kg CO2e. The purpose of the calculations generated by The 2030 calculator tool is to give an acceptably accurate indication of the cradle-to-gate carbon footprint of a product, suitable for self-declaration by a product manufacturer or product brand. They are not intended to be used for any other purpose. Although we have made every effort to validate all data used in our calculations to the extent possible, Doconomy and our listed partners do not make any representations about the accuracy of the data obtained from third party sources.
