Tomorrow’s materials need not only be more efficient, they must also be environmentally-friendly. Researchers at the Matériaux biosourcés of IMT Mines Alès, led by Eric Guibal et Thierry Vincent, are developing ecological alternatives to the most polluting materials. One of their latest designs is a naturally occurring polymer foam, dubbed Algimel, that can replace various uses of polystyrene.
