Apple pomace films
- story by MaterialDistrict
A Matter of Fruit develops natural materials from industrial juice press residues (also known as pomace), mainly using apple waste. This by-product is transformed into flexible films which offer a non-toxic alternative to synthetic materials and fossil-fuel based plastics. The new material is fully compostable and recyclable, e.g. into biodegradable plant pots. Depending on the thickness, the films can be categorised between paper, plastic or leather and offer potential for different areas of application – from interior design to leather replacement.
