Today, fire/flame retardants are frequently applied on commercial products
primarily aimed for the business markets in North America, Europe and
Most of the commercial application products aimed for the business markets

Bio-Eco® and MHE®, both are the prime safe alternatives to the harmful chemical fire/flame
retardants/suppressants that are found in most consumer products - synthetic, as well as natural fibre materials.
The recycling of waste material of the plant kingdom makes the Bio-Eco® products most price competitive in bulk volumes (MT).
Even MHE® products in bulk volumes (MT) are price competitive, in respect of the Chinese market concerning fire/flame retardant/suppressant products.
