Ceccolini created AgriDust as her final project at the University of Design of San Marino, where she studied the recovery of food waste. AgriDust is composed of waste (64.5 percent) and potato starch-based binder (35.5 percent) and uses cold technology which renders it compatible with 3D printing technology when the classic extruder is replaced with a syringe.

AgriDust allows for food waste to be used to create different types of packagingand plant pots in a non-toxic way. The project will be exhibited at this year’s Milan Expo, where visitors will have the opportunity to learn more about the process and perhaps reproduce it in their own homes.
