Alternative natural rubber, latex and inulin
Production of natural rubber and latex
from rubber-bearing plants in North
satisfy global demand and
to solve latex allergy.
-Development of green extraction technologies for
latex and inulin;
-Providing extraction equipment for production of
natural rubber, latex and inulin;
-Production of natural rubber, latex and inulin.
Solution to global issues:
All natural rubber and latex are imported to North America from Southeast Asia. Brazilian Hevea tree is the only source of natural rubber and latex.
Supply of natural rubber is threatened due to the time to grow Hevea
tree (8 yrs), growing market demand, excessive manual labor required for tapping the latex, tree diseases and land shortages.
products from Hevea tree cause latex allergy in certain people. Currently, twenty million people are at risk of fatal latex allergy
in North America. Slow-developing latex allergy is threatening everyone.
As the result of all these factors, the price
for natural rubber has increased 14 times since 1997 inspiring the global search for natural rubber alternatives.
issues can only be solved by producing alternative natural rubber and latex from rubber-bearing plants such as Taraxacum kok-saghyz (TKS) (aka
Russian Dandelion) and Scorzonera tau-saghyz (STS). These rubber-bearing plants were discovered by Soviet Union in 1930s. In
1940s these rubber-bearing plants were grown in the USA and Canada to satisfy rubber shortage. Both rubber-bearing
plants can be grown at minimal costs and all operations can be completely mechanized.
