Entrepreneurial Kingston School of Art graduates cook up Chip[s] Board – an eco-friendly alternative to MDF made from potato peelings

Two Kingston University graduates have created an environmentally friendly, sustainable and biodegradable alternative to MDF, produced from potato peelings. Graphic design graduates Rob Nicol and Rowan Minkley are the team behind Chip[s] Board - a potato-based product turning food waste material from restaurants into a robust ready-to-use chipboard-like sheet.

The environmentally friendly product is strong enough to construct temporary structures designed to last more than a month. "We have some samples that are over a year old now - It lasts as a material without degrading," Rowan explained. "We could build a product with a lifespan of three to five years or provide the stands, stalls and even some temporary accommodation for a summer festival. We want to reduce the amount of materials that are used only once and then chucked in a skip - Chip[s] Board is designed to break down quickly in an industrial compost."...
