Lab-cultured yak and kangaroo, fungal biomass leather, biobased coatings, brewery waste and more: The Digest’s Top 8 Innovations for the week of September 10th

September 9, 2020 |

Under development down under is lab-cultured yak, kangaroo meat, lion and tortoise, which apparently people eat, but now can do so without feeling guilty with the new cell-based meat replacements. Also saving the animals are material chemists that developed vegan leather made from fungal biomass. And a Swiss firm that launched biobased barrier coatings (made from calcium carbonate and acrylic co-polymers) for paper food packaging.

In today’s Digest, peel back the layers on these Top 8 Innovations as well as some drink-worthy ones like Absolut vodka’s paper bottle prototypes and a German company converting brewery waste into a biodegradable packaging material, and more.
