Australia: New Plastic Means Almost Anything Can Be Made From Hemp

Australia: New Plastic Means Almost Anything Can Be Made From Hemp | design, technology, thermal management | Scoop.it

Today's plastics are made from petroleum, which means we are polluting the atmosphere and putting products that cannot biodegrade into our environment. But Zeoform, a new company based in Australia has created a new kind of plastic made only from water and cellulose taken from hemp plants -- meaning the plastic is not only eco-friendly but biodegradable.

 

The company's patented process converts the cellulose fibers found in hemp into a super-strong, high tech molding material capable of being formed into 100 percent nontoxic and biodegradable products...

 

The company says their product relies only upon the natural process of hydrogen bonding that takes place when cellulose fibers are mixed with water. No glue or other bonding material is necessary, because the bond already created is so strong.

 

The final material can be turned into almost anything, and can be cut, routed, machined, drilled, screwed, nailed and glued in the same way wood can be.

Everyone is talking about hardware, sharing all kinds of optimism about how hardware is cool again. We’ve already heard the reasons why. But here’s what we don’t know, and what we need to talk about if we want the current ...

JuneAtAavid's insight:

"We can’t ship “beta” hardware and then iterate on features until someone buys it, as we do with software MVPs. And promising features on Kickstarter that hardware companies can’t deliver on isn’t a way to validate what should go in the box, either."
