Trash-2-Cash project event/ Book launch “Lost in the Wood(s), a new Biomateriality in Finland”
September 19, 2017 Helsinki, Finland
Trash-2-Cash , T2C-project is an EU funded research project aiming to create newly regenerated fibers from pre-consumer and post-consumer waste. It’s also pioneering a whole new way of developing materials (http://trash2cashproject.eu/).
The second part of the seminar presents the publication Lost in the Wood(s). How could Finnish natural resource, renewable biomaterials -such as cellulose- replace oil-based resources and how could we create new business and service models for society through design and collaboration? This book presents inspiring cases and stories by researchers working with biomaterials. Through these cases, they suggest how a more sustainable future could be achieved.
