Edward TJ Mitchell: Transforming beer protein into a leather alternative - entrepreneurship & biomaterial innovation
Leather and plastic-leather are unsustainable; by manipulating the rich protein content within brewers’ spent grain, the waste grain from brewing industry, Arda Biomaterials have developed an animal & plastic free alternative.
