Mexican researchers look at biomimicry traits of Cocoyol palm fruit

July 17, 2018 |

In Mexico, researchers from the Center for Scientific Research of Yucatán are leading an international team looking at the Cocoyol palm fruit as a potential feedstock for solid biofuel but also at the possibility of developing advanced composite materials with high strength and low density using the fruit. A number of biomimicry tests have been undertaken to understand the mechanics of the fruit and the outer layer of its seed to understand its hardness and how it could be best put to use.
