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.

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

Hey @halimwidyakusuma,

thanks for the link! 🙂
It’s not our project, but it’s the same process. Wheat bran just seems like the perfect material to make these things from it, since it doesn’t need anything besides water, heat and pressure.

We have a lot of rice bran around us.

Hey Stanley,

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.

Just came across this https://www.theshellworks.com/
It may not be compatible with the PP vegan cafe but interesting.

Hi @dasjannis,
Regarding the biodegradable bowls, maybe you could use beeswax on the inside to waterproof it? Awesome projects btw! 🙂

Hi @ohanao,
Thanks for the great idea! I’m planning to cover the topic of biodegradable coatings and treatments like that a bit later in the project. But it’s definitely on my to-do list 🙂

Out of curiosity, are there regulations in the EU on what material can come in contact with human food (materials, processing history, etc)?

previously i thought you use some wood glue,
feel impressed knowing that just sticked by heat-water-pressure
awesome project 😀

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

Hey there!
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 🙂
