Design & Engineering group PEGA, have been displaying a revolutionary new material at the Milan Furniture Fair this week. The award-winning material is a paper-based shelling that is strong, environmentally-friendly and cheap to make. The Paper PP Alloy could replace the plastic used to make laptop computer shells and other consumer electronic products.

The material, made from a combination of recyclable paper and polypropylene, can be injection molded like standard plastic products. It is sturdy and flexible, biodegradable, and the materials are readily available. This green material has a lot of potential and many advantages, as its award and interest from consumer electronics manufacturers shows.
