Sustainability: wine self serve in Italy saving the planet
On a recent trip to Manduria (in the southern Italian provence of Taranto), my parents were pleasantly surprised by the innovation they found in a family run winery. Rather than encourage the production of more bottles & packaging, the family have self serve capabilities for locals to 'fill & pay' as they need from some of their finest drops. Sustainability doesn't have to be difficult.?Check it out next time you head to Italy: https://www.produttorivinimanduria.it

A new pest detection system for prawn farmers
Genics is a prawn pathogen technology. It diagnoses 13 commercially relevant pathogens of prawns (plus known genetic variants) in one assessment, drastically reducing testing costs, turnaround times and increasing the use of pathogen diagnostics in everyday management decisions in prawn farming. The technology is unique in its ability to detect multiple pathogens simultaneously in a highly specific, sensitive and semi-quantitative manner that is equivalent to and in many cases superior to current single pathogen detection systems used globally. Genics has been supported by the ON Accelerate program at CSIRO. http://www.oninnovation.com.au/en/ON-teams/ON-Tribe/ON-Accelerate4-Teams/Genics

Measuring cups designed to visually tell a measurement
If you are someone who loves to cook and a visual thinker like me, you understand the trouble of going through your measurement cups while cooking and trying to read the almost invisible measurement units. These measurement cups are designed to represent fractions with their shape, so what you see is what you get: a full cup is one, a half cup is half, a third looks like 1/3, and a quarter looks like 1/4. Just like a pie chart! https://www.yankodesign.com/2019/07/09/these-measuring-cups-are-designed-to-visually-represent-fractions-for-intuitive-use/

A plastic film made out of left over shellfish shells
CuanTec is extracting a protein called chitin from the shells of langoustines, and transforming it through fermentation into a natural biopolymer known as chitosan. This is used to make a clear food wrapper that can be later composted at home and has natural antimicrobial properties. The startup is currently at research stage but looking to finalise a round of financing. While this is not the first biodegradable wrapper produced from shellfish waste, other processes created materials that were unappealing to customers. https://www.springwise.com/innovation/food/biodegradable-packaging-cuantec-shellfish-waste
