I develop plant based alternative to animal leather.
I test various bio-polymers (for example agar, cellulose) and their blends (various mixing ratios) and use them as binding substances. Plant-based food waste like fruit peels, coffee or grass, and dry leaves will be used to create the final product.
Benchmarking various additives influencing mechanical properties is a big part of my activities. For example, my newest “discovery” is the fact that copper sulfate improves the stiffness of agar.
My goal is to have material that will exhibit mechanical properties on the level of animal leather. The final product will not contain any petroleum-based raw materials. Dyes and adhesives will be plant-based as well.
