A study of the potential of homemade sustainable bioplastic materials, exploring the properties of Agar Agar, Alginate, Gelatin and Chitosan bioplastics.
These bioplastics only require basic kitchen equipements to be made. The study explored shapes, colors and mechanical properties, below are some samples of the study conducted.
The experiments were conducteds by testing variations of the recipes from the Bioplastic Cookbook by blablabla, diverse fabrication process and the possible applications as textile, packaging or furniture materials.
Some of the proof of concepts products include a compostable makeup/toilet case and a test of an injection molding out of Agar showing the challenge of managing the retractation of the material.
A totaly edible crackers packaging was also made out of an Agar sheets as proof of concept.
