German designer Gerrit Kaiser created “Particle Economy”, a project that focuses on a resource-starved future where “natural” floating particles, from volcanic eruptions or industrial pollution, could be turned into economical opportunities by harvesting them with a flying cloud collector.

Biophilia by Veronica Ranner are genetically modified silk worms that create biodegradable, soft and very odd cocoons for keeping donors’ organs instead of using machines!

Another project that focuses on drying, grinding and binding waste food is by Erik de Laurens, who created a plastic-like material made entirely from fish scales! This new graduate is looking for funding to extend his idea, which has been designed to be sustainable, local and for small-scale production.
