While resources are becoming increasingly scarce, numerous industries continue to dispose of valuable minerals unused. The meat industry, for example, produces masses of animal by-products, e.g. bones. In the "Pass The Bone" project, 4 different bone-based materials were therefore developed in local production chains. Bone glass, bone porcelain, bone terrazzo and the "complete bone". The bones used come from different animal species from different husbandries. The aim of the project is to use existing waste instead of wasting more resources.
