Development of bio-ink based on plant proteins for 3D printing

Industry Sector



  • To develop bio inks that are extracted from the food waste proteins.

  • Future commercialisation opportunity: 3D printed bio-scaffolds.

Innovation Applied

  • Extraction of proteins from the food waste [process innovation]

  • Develop a bio-ink that demonstrates bio-affinity and bio-degradability [material innovation]

Key Benefits

  • Enable a novel bio-scaffold with ideal bio-affinity and bio-degradability which is derived from the food waste.

  • Built in real time monitoring capability.
