In our efforts to introduce environmentally sustainable packaging, continuous research is carried out on biodegradability and compostability of packaging in both home and industrial composting environments which aid us in sourcing suitable materials
On our Sustainable journey in material source reduction, Dilmah had conducted an in-depth evaluation in DPI values and successfully reduced ink consumed for corrugated outer in-house printing by 45% to 50% per annum.
Bipolar Ionisation system
Our installed Bipolar Ionization units produce Bio–Climate Negative Ions (The Air Vitamin) to proactively destroy any unhealthy microorganism by damaging the cells of the viruses and reacting with protein of the virus, and then deactivate the virus
Plasma Air’s ionisers use proactive air purification technologies to safely deactivate airborne viruses.
Bipolar ionisation creates millions of negative ions, a proven method of virus destruction.
Recent tests by the Spanish government show that Plasma Air products have been proven to reduce Covid-19 surrogate by 99% airborne and 80% on surfaces.
