LIMEX の紙代替製品は、紙を作る原料となる木材パルプを一切使用することなく、製造に必要な水も通常の紙と比べて大幅に節約することが可能です。
また、LIMEX のプラスチックの代替製品は、石油の使用量を抑えて、CO2 の削減ができ、地球の資源の枯渇問題に貢献可能です。

LIMEX, a new high-tech material crafted from stone that can substitute for paper or plastic, uses limestone as its main ingredient. It can be used for various purposes, such as business cards, restaurant menus, PR materials, food containers, lifestyle products and gardening items. It differs from conventional stone paper, as the material is lightweight, high quality, and can be crafted cheaply. Furthermore, LIMEX is durable and water-resistant, and its high reusability makes it special. Products that substitute LIMEX for paper use absolutely no wood pulp, the raw ingredient for manufacturing paper. LIMEX makes it possible to conserve a substantial amount of water when compared to the water normally needed to make paper. In addition, products that substitute LIMEX for plastic can limit the amount of oil usage and reduce CO2, making it possible to help alleviate the world’s resource exhaustion problem.
