Cacao village, lab-grown oysters, fish waste-based surfactants, Maybelline going biobased by 2030, and more: The Digest’s Top 8 Innovations for the week of January 28th

January 27, 2022 |

The dream of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is closer than you may think with an entire village called Cacao Eco Village being planned in Ecuador using renewable construction materials including 3D printed cacao waste. It comes complete with an education and research center and of course, a chocolate factory.

And cleaning with fish waste may seem counter-intuitive, but a Scottish startup is developing a surfactant from fish farming byproducts. Speaking of seafood…a Bangladeshi scientist created biodegradable PPE from jute and chitosan, a material found in crustacean shells. And in North Carolina, a startup working on lab-grown oysters.

In today’s Digest, these tasty and not so tasty innovations plus Maybelline’s vow to be 95% biobased or circular by 2030, plant-based hair extensions, and more.
