Environmental gain
Stopping burning reduces the risk of health:
- people who do it in vineyards using oil drain and breathe elements like zinc and copper;
- local residents because burning increases the amount of CO2 and nitric oxide released into the air.
- The burning of one hectare of vine shoot emits 2.5 t of CO2; (Source study agricultural biomass and first transformation of biomass in Paca - CRA PACA 2012)

This bio-based material makes it possible to use less or more of plastic, fossil or other vegetable materials according to the possible uses.
