Zeo transforms waste paper and water (and nothing else) into a patented molding material that sets as hard as ebony. The material, aptly called Zeoform, is expected to replace wood and wood composites, fiberglass and plastics in a host of everyday consumer items, industrial products and construction applications, cutting down on waste and conserving precious resources. The creators of Zeo will be launching a crowdfunding campaign at the Sydney EcoXpo on September the 20th called ‘One In A Million’. Learn more about their initiative here or watch their video above!
