Untalented Material
Material research

As of mid-2015, the world population reached 7.3 billion. There are over 100 million tons of garbage produced by human every year. Should the global population reach 9.6 billion by 2050, the equivalent of almost three planets could be required to provide the natural resource needed to sustain current lifestyles.

 

This project is aiming to achieve sustainable management and efficient use of natural resources. After going through a mass of material, I focus on these two types: plant fiber and animal protein. They are easily found in daily life. More importantly, both of them could be degraded.
