Israeli firm Nova Milan opened its first innovation centre in Costa Rica’s Alajuela city last week as part of a project to produce plant leather, sustainable fabrics and bioplastics from organic plant waste. The aim is to help Costa Rica's struggles with plant-based waste like banana, coconut, yuca and pineapple, and use leftover agricultural products.

Company founders Irma Orenstein and Karim Quazzani developed the technology to recycle agricultural waste into valuable products, including one of the world’s nearly petroleum-free vegan leathers.

"We are very proud to join efforts, based on Israeli innovation and technology, with the environmental commitment of Costa Rica, under the leadership and female entrepreneurship from Israel, with women from the Caribbean area," Bar-El was quoted as saying by Israeli media outlets.
