Biodegradable cellulose COVID-19 antibody test, orange peel waste recovers precious metals, biobased fabrics and more: The Digest’s Top 8 Innovations for the week of September 3rd

September 2, 2020 |

COVID-19 has changed the way we do many things and it’s hard not to notice the increased single-use disposable items, but one researcher in Mexico designed a biodegradable test for COVID-19 antibodies, made of cellulose that can biodegrade in the soil in less than 10 weeks, just like a banana peel. In China, researchers are using citrus fruit peel waste to recover precious metals from battery waste, which could then be used in the production of new batteries.

In today’s Digest, dig into these innovations and a flower waste-based vegan leather, a dress that biodegrades in a day, new plant-based laundry care brand launched exclusively for Amazon, biobased fabric made by DSM used to protect Tour de France cyclists, and more…ready for you now at The Digest online.
