  6. Growth of a Fungal Biopolymer to Displace Common Synthetic Polymers and Exotic Woods

    SBC: ECOVATIVE DESIGN LLC            Topic: B

    The use of plastic (polyethylene, Polypropylene, polyurethane and poly lactic acid) has grown and continues to grow steadily because of the materials’ high strength-to-weigh ratios, low cost, and ease of molding as compared to conventional natural materials. Unfortunately, almost all commercial plastics are notoriously unsustainable due to fossil fuel-based constituents, the wasteful and energy ...
