Edible bale wrap developed to reduce livestock farm waste
Farmers Weekly (UK)
Three PhD students have invented an edible bale wrap to reduce farm waste. The patent-pending BioNet biopolymer was developed specifically for farms to wrap hay and silage. It is the brainchild of three Imperial College London PhD students: Nick Aristidou, Will Joyce and Stelios Chatzimichail. The trio came up with the idea after Mr Joyce, who grew up on a farm in Rutland, noticed his parent’s beef herd was creating a lot of wrapping waste.
