Deakin Bio

A sustainable bio-based alternative to decorative ceramic tiles

Deakin Bio have developed a process to produce bio-based materials that are functionally equivalent to decorative ceramic tiles but avoid the need for high-temperature firing. This reduces the embodied carbon by approximately 94%. The bioinspired materials have a structure and chemistry similar to natural seashells, yet can be produced at scale.
