    Fries companies produce a lot of potato peels waste. The idea of ​​this project is to use of this waste material in order to create a street food packaging. The potato peel is made up of starches and fibers components, which after maceration and natural drying, acquire the ability to bond with each other and harden. The obtained material completely made up of production waste, is 100% biodegradable. After being used, the packaging has the possibility to re-insert itself in a useful way in the biological cycle becoming animal food or fertilizer for plants. Read Less

The obtained material is completely made of production waste and is 100% biodegradable. After being used, the packaging can be usefully re-inserted in the biological cycle becoming animal food or fertilizer for plants.
