How to Biodesign #27: Bio binders and coatings

Biomaterials like mycelium and kombucha leather are often not water-resistant and therefore need a coating. Biopolymers like beeswax or natural rubbers provide solutions, yet fungi can also provide an interesting coating for biomaterials. How can designers apply these innovations, and how do you choose or develop a coating?

How to Biodesign series

Climate crisis asks for regenerative design. With the meetup series How to Biodesign, Blue City provides a platform for and by bioneers (pioneers in biodesign). Together with various hosts we explore the opportunities from a systemic approach to raw material flows, making smart use of the latest knowledge and expertise about circular design, but also from biotechnology and biochemistry.

The monthly meetups facilitate interaction between bioneers who are already working and those who want to get started with biodesign and biofabrication, provide a platform for sharing stories and experiences and actively share knowledge, know-how and insights from the meetups to a broader audience.
