V4 BeyondPlastic – [INDEX]
In this topic we will gather all general ideas, questions and suggestions on biodegradable materials, bioplastics and future alternatives to plastic. Below you will find an index with all topics and links connected to materials, processes and prototypes.
@dasjannis and @carmen-kelly are currently working on this task and @marinab and @zsofi were part of the team in the past.
If you are interested to find out more about our process until now and like reading blog-like entries, check out these two topics:
– Process of the Way to the Heatable Mould
– First Material Experiments and Way to Wheat Bran and Potato Peels
hello dasjannis this is the same work? 🙂

Did you know that you could buy edible plates and cutlery? Made from wheat bran that's been heated and then compressed, these items are 100% biodegradable, which means that if you don't feel like having your fork or plate as dessert, you could throw them away and they will completely disappear in just 30 days! #bansingleuseplastic #banplastic #saynotosingleuse #saynotosingleuseplastic #plasticpollution #plasticalternative #biodegradablepackaging #biodegradableproducts #sustainableproducts #sustainableliving

We have a lot of rice bran around us.
rice bran should be an option as well, even though we have not tried it yet. And you can find all the information we have so far in the linked forum topics.
If you have more detailed questions, send me a direct message.
Out of curiosity, are there regulations in the EU on what material can come in contact with human food (materials, processing history, etc)?
Hey Guys – First – you are all so awesome! I wasn’t sure if you knew about this, so I’m passing it on. https://inhabitat.com/biodegradable-tableware-made-from-wheat-bran-debuts-at-torontos-green-living-show/?variation=d
So it was a bit quiet in our topic for the last weeks. (My last entry was at the end of February?! 😮) Time flies by, I guess 🦋…
In the mean time a few things changed, Marina went back to Finnland to finish her masters degree (Go Marina!💪) and I got some unexpected but wonderful support from @zsofi from Hungary. She is now testing out all kinds of different raw materials in our prototype in order to already build up a material library to go with the machine in the end. She will share the results of her experiments and all her fast growing knowledge in our materials topic soon!
On the other hand we worked on developing our proof-of-concept-heat-press further and are now far enough to feel confident to start the actual machine building. I will share all those processes from now in the machine development section of our topic 🙂
