The Starts Prize-nominated project for innovative collaboration is inviting you to a four hour-long biomaterials workshop at Fab Lab Barcelona. An emerging development in the field of industrial design, fashion and art is the creation of biobased materials, biofabricated in laboratories from microorganisms, bacteria and biopolymers. The industry is already incubating solutions to create new products that propose alternatives to materials derived from petroleum or animals, with examples from small and large companies such as Deserto, Piñatex, Bolt Threads, and Gelatex. The “Remix, (FWBM) Food Waste Biomaterial Makers Workshop” is a demonstration and hands-on experimentation of material design through biorecipes and manufacturing processes that promote sustainability, circularity, biodegradability and zero waste.
The STARTS Prize has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 956603.
