At IMEKO, we know that every second that passes, so many cigarette butts are discarded in the world that they could fill 80 Olympic swimming pools.

The filter of the cigarette butts is made of cellulose acetate, a plastic material that retains thousands of toxic compounds (+7000)
We are chemists, innovators and passionate about the circular economy, creating sustainable raw materials from the world’s cigarette waste.
From chemistry the solution is born. Cigarette butts go from being a problem to a new innovative and sustainable raw material that with its use has a positive impact on the environment.
