The new veneers of the Beleaf Company offer a wide variety of options – with regard to both creative and functional aspects. They stand out by an excellent green performance: during its life cycle, a banana tree produces one banana bunch only. After harvest, the stem is cut off. It decomposes releasing large quantities of environmentally harmful CO2. The new veneers are made 100 per cent from waste products of the banana plantations. In spite of an increased demand for veneers, woods can be conserved and CO2 emissions reduced.
