Biomaterial Variants

︎ Creator:  Vaishnavi Sudhanshu Mehta
︎ Supervisors:  Jennifer Bissonnette & Peter Yeadon

This study explores variations on three well-known biomaterials: gelatin-based bioplastics, corncrete, and SCOBY. The primary bioplastic composition (gelatin, glycerin, and potato starch) was altered by including numerous additives and natural dyes, such as: night flowering jasmine, fly ash, tea waste, coconut husk fiber, tea, and soap. The primary corncrete composition (cornstarch and sand) was altered by including: sawdust, tea waste, chickpea waste, and fly ash. Various teas were used to make the SCOBY.
