Agro-sourced materials: A response to increased resource scarcity

The challenge for companies using agricultural resources in material production consists of guaranteeing a sustainable supply and mitigating ecological impacts.

Participants include:

Sven Mouton - Architect with a penchant for bamboo as a construction material.

Antonio Molina - This botanical chemist, world leader in rail paints, is constantly inventing new sustainable and/or bio-sourced materials. Latest innovation to date: an industrial paint for manufacturing cars that consume no more than 2 liters per 100 kg.

Sam Harrington - His company grows packaging from mushrooms, in less than 48 hours! Its biomaterials are winning over an increasing number of corporations, from construction to logistics, with many converts in the distribution sector as well.
