New Materials

Raw material reserves are dwindling while populations and emissions are increasing, so the category for new, sustainable materials is of particular importance.

The goal is to build a cross-industry database of materials and prototypes to inspire participants in the other categories. Special interest is given to innovative new materials of unusual sources such as mushrooms, fruits, algae, pine needles, seaweed or ash.  

Here are the nominees and winners (framed in green) of the New Materials category of the last award cycle. Other categories can be found here.
