The real problem is not whether machines think, but whether men do. 

Frederic Burrhus Skinner  (1904-1990)
American psychologist, social philosopher, inventor and author.

Respect for the planet and responsible production are essential for our future and contribute to greater efficiency.

At SEIC, we are firmly convinced that the future of the planet depends on a drastic reduction in the generation of waste, the reuse of materials and the adoption of highly responsible productive industrial processes.

This is why we help companies from several sectors to create and adopt technologies that contribute to achieving this horizon, basing our research and development of solutions on these principles.


Cellulose is the most abundant biopolymer in nature: a polysaccharide consisting entirely of betaglucose. It is the fundamental component of the cell walls of plants and algae, insoluble and resistant to a multitude of chemical attacks.

For this reason, it is one of the sustainable and renewable materials that nature offers for the manufacture of many products that, subsequently, can be recycled until their natural descomposition.

Sustainable sources

Cellulose is usually associated with paper and, by extension, with trees. At SEIC, however, we also look for sources of cellulose in plants and algae, mostly waste from other industries, which become raw materials for us.

Cotton from fabrics, residual straw from cereals, reeds, fruits or deciduous plants. These are some examples of sustainable sources of cellulose that we can use.

Utilisation of waste

Industrial waste can be the raw material of our projects.

We can use the bagasse after extracting the sugar in liquid form from sugar cane, take advantage of the tomato plant when it has already produced its fruits or the straw of different cereals when the grain has already been extracted, and we can work with seaweed or recover the skin and shells of fruits.

At SEIC we believe that nature supplies us with what we require, and we need to know how to use it responsibly.

Circular processes

A process is circular when it manages to completely close the circle. Because, when this is not accomplished and only part of the circle is closed, economic benefits are probably achieved, but also rejections of great complexity are generated.

At SEIC, thanks to the tools and knowledge provided from our experience, closing the circles is a high priority: productive efficiency with minimal waste that is easy to deal with.
