Idea Title

Material comestible

Idea Summary

La propuesta se basa en un material que se crea a partir de los residuos de industrias harineras y aceiteras. Retomando las semillas que se han explrimido, dejando un material poco permeable.

Please include a visual (can be either 2D or 3D) representation/prototype of your concept. (required)

El poyecto está basado en una idea de despojarnos del antropocentrismo que existe en la producción de vasos desechables actuales. El material que proponemos se recupera de residuos de grandes fábricas harineras y aceiteras para así sustituir los residuos que estos producen.

This solution addresses which of the following:

  • Cup Lids
  • Reusable System

How is your concept recoverable?

Esta idea surge a partir de La problemática actuales de los desechos que se generan a partir del uso cotidiano de los materiales desechables, creando un material que no genera desechos, si no que se recuperará en su últimas condiciones como abono natural.

How have you incorporated additional sustainability attributes (beyond recoverability) into your solution?

Además si los residuos terminan en atmósferas naturales, podrían servir para. Consumo de pequeñas especies como aves, ruedores o peces.

What regions do you plan to address with your solution (and how will you accomplish this)?

En primer lugar apoyaría el pais de origen, México, que dejaría de producir desechos contamienataes en sus espacios verdes.

Describe your target market. Who will benefit from your product?

El mercado obetivo abarca muchos ambientes, pero nos concentramos principalmente en personas de edad adulta consientes de las problemáticas ambientales que estarían dispuestas a gastar un porcentaje adicional por contribuir con el ambiente.

What is the current stage of development of your idea?

  • Research & Early Testing

What are the biggest challenges you are facing today? What are existing gaps in your solution?

El mercado de la sustentabilidad resulta muy conpetitivo hoy en día, por lo tanto es difícil que sobresalga la idea en un mar de propuestas.

An ordinary cardboard cup breaks down in the natural environment roughly in a year or thereabout. Approximately how the fallen leaves does, consisting of the same cellulose. In order for the new material for the production of cups to become a cost effective replacement of cardboard, it should decompose order faster, somewhere in a month, maybe two or three. This is at an average temperature of 15 degrees Celsius (according to NASA). But when we pour water near a boiling point, at a temperature of 95 degrees, into such cup , according to the rule of Svante August Arrhenius, all the chemical processes in it, including the self-decay of complex molecules, respectively, accelerate. The minimum acceleration will be somewhere 250 times, and the maximum will be about 65,000 times. That is, for a disposable cup that has been filled for at least an hour, and this is a real situation somewhere on a picnic, there is all the chances to pour out their content on the table at best , at worst, on himself or his electronic devices. Even if this cup was made a few days before that and was stored in a stock in perfect conditions.
Therefore, the question arises - how do you deal with such issue?
