Designing furniture made from recycled plastic and agro-industrial waste
Diseclar sources its raw materials from recyclers, collection points and factories. In its innovative production process the collected plastic is mixed with agro-industrial waste - such as coffee chaff, sugar-cane pulp and rice chaff - to produce ecological furniture, decks and pergolas. Diseclar’s main customers are restaurants, recreational centres and retailers.
Compared to conventional wooden furniture Diseclar offers customers long-lasting products, which can be used indoors or outdoors, withstand rain, snow, cold or heat and do not rot or splinter.
Diseclar designs, produces and markets the furniture.
Servicio Nacional de Aprendizaje (SENA) supports and advises Diseclar on the whole production process from furniture design to waste management.
Campus Nova at the Javierian University helps Diseclar to improve the internal process and increase our social and environmental impact in our region.
The 2014 SEED Low Carbon Awards are largely supported by the International Climate Initiative (ICI) of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB).
