The world’s first CO2-neutral foam – BioFoam consists of biopolymers, i.e. renewable, plant-based materials. This makes BioFoam the first organic-based foam that can be recycled. The material is biodegradable and can be industrially composted at high temperatures under the influence of moisture and bacteria, yet BioFoam is suitable for long-term use. #positivechange #bethechange #sustainabledesign #designforthefuture #materialinnovation #newmaterials #materialtrends #biofoam Product[...]

Alginsulate foam

Foam from algae – The innovative alginsulate foam, which was developed in an exchange between TU Graz and the Universidad de Magallanes in Chile, shows the natural marine inhabitant in a new light. The algae-based packaging material is not only environmentally friendly, but is also available in unlimited quantities. In addition, algae is a rapidly renewable raw material.[...]
