Materiom provides open source recipes and data on materials made from abundant sources of natural ingredients, like agricultural waste. Their online library features open source recipes for materials made from abundant biomass that can be locally sourced. Recipes use green chemistry methods and nutrients such as sugars, proteins, fats and common minerals, making them biodegradable by design. Recipes are contributed by our international community of designers, scientists, engineers and artists. They are licensed as open source to encourage rapid advancement and widespread use. “Materiom Hubs” are centers of regional expertise, creating a feedback loop between local sourcing and market application, and our international network for materials R&D.
