Innovation wing's new wonder-material
2021: In the early parts of this year, Innovators Campbell Harris and Will Phillips were working with Australian universities to find a suitable bioplastic compound to use as a starting point for a new groundbreaking material.
Now in November 2021 after many small scale tests involving different ingredients and methods, we are ready to begin larger-scale testing. We also now have a name we are ready to share with the world: Viridian.
Viridian is a family of entirely bio-based, entirely biodegradable, home compostable hard plastic substrates which have potentially endless applications. Using seldom utilized biopolymers, natural oils, and plant fibre waste product, we are building a material that can do the job of hard plastics like ABS but that will biodegrade in 6 months.
GSA Innovation Welcomes First Interns
2021: Campbell Harris, our Innovator at the GSA Innovation Centre welcomed our first interns into the fold. They wil be learning the industry, shadowing our Innovators and helping us to problem-solve real issues facing the environment and the world. From one intern, Jamie:
What are you looking forward to achieving while at GSA?
One of the main things that I am hoping to achieve during this Internship with GSA is immersing myself in the organisational culture of an international business. I am also looking forward to gaining valuable industry experience within an international business that I will be able to use when i enter the workforce.
What is it about GSA that inspired you to take on this internship?
Before finding out about GSA I had no idea that this would be something that I would be interested in pursuing, but after speaking with members of GSA I was shown a whole different side of manufacturing in sustainability. It was definitely this sustainable aspect and my eagerness for a challenge that made me very interested and excited to get involved with the GSA team.
