BetaWare is a material made of sugar beet cellulose and molasses, which is vegan and honestly compostable. These are by-products of sugar production, so no additional land is used for the consumption of goods. After intermediate use, the material can be returned to a natural cycle. The material was developed through intensive research and a large number of trials, including successful injection molding tests. Products were designed that are versatile and demonstrate processing methods. In the context of resilient, honest and sustainable design, a future-oriented design approach was created.
