Iron Man investments in bioplastic, Bill Gates’ beef with beef, biobased clogs, and more: The Digest’s Top 8 Innovations for the week of February 25th

February 24, 2021 |

What do Bill Gates and Robert Downey, Jr. have in common? Apparently, they both are looking for ways to alleviate climate change by getting involved in the bioeconomy. Bill Gates is talking about plant-based or lab-grown beef as a way to save the world since cows burp, fart, and poop too much methane. And Iron Man actor Robert Downey, Jr. is investing in bioplastic startup RWDC which makes medium-chain-length polyhydroxyalkanoate (mcl-PHA) biopolymers.

In today’s Digest, these and other Top 8 Innovations like algae sequins to make fashion a bit more fashionable, Dansko clogs made from Braskem’s biobased ethylene vinyl acetate, and more.
