Biodegradable Bike Helmet Made From Eco-Friendly ‘Styrofoam’
This head-protector's made from lightweight, renewable forest products
A wood-based foam material that could serve as an eco-friendly alternative to Styrofoam has been created by a team in Sweden. Cellufoam is made of nanocellulose produced from wood pulp, making it renewable and biodegradable. Its properties mean it would be suitable for a number of potential applications in lightweight construction, packaging materials and absorbent products, and it has recently been used in a bike helmet.
