We produce sustainable bioinspired alternatives to ceramic tiles.
Ordinary ceramic tiles have a huge carbon footprint as they need to be fired at high temperatures over many hours. This energy-intensive processing is unsustainable.
DeakinBio produces bioinspired composites (biocomposites) as green, sustainable alternatives to ceramic tiles. Inspired by nature, our materials have structures and compositions similar to natural composites such as seashells, tooth enamel and pearl.
