BIOSPIFE - In this Innovation story, we learn about a compostable bioplastic material that incorporates kiwifruit residues and the importance of collaboration in the development of the biospife. Its success represents a significant step in bioplastic development. We see how the knowledge gained may be applied to other products and waste streams, addressing increasing demand for sustainable materials.

THE SCIENCE OF TEA. All tea is made from the leaves of the tea plant, Camellia sinesis. Six main types of tea are produced – white, yellow, green, oolong, black and post-fermented. Each type of tea has a unique aroma, taste and visual appearance. As the six main types of tea are from the leaves of the same plant, the key to the chemical and taste differences is found in the processing – in particular, in the steps of oxidation, stopping the oxidation, forming the tea and drying it.

INFO SHEET - Biodegradability, compostability and bioplastics - Bioplastics are a form of plastic that can be made from renewable bio-based resources. Many bioplastic materials are designed to be biodegradable, and some are designed to be compostable. These properties are important for the functionality of the end product and for its disposal.

YIKE BIKE - In this Innovation story, we find out about Grant Ryan’s radical redesign of the traditional bicycle, the YikeBike. We see how important composite materials have been in making it light, strong and compact. We look at its unique safety features and see why having an electric motor makes it ideal for commuters in an urban environment.
