Something is always wasted when materials are extracted and processed. At industrial manufacturing plants, construction sites and workshops, and during the process of making, finishing and packaging the end products, the material left over is often incinerated, dumped or exported.

Could residual material from the building industry, food processing, textile manufacturing and livestock farming turn out to be the raw material of the future? And might even substances such as human waste, hair or cigarette butts be utilized?

This special presentation shows how waste material can be put to good use, and draws attention to the unexploited potential of materials that are still regarded as waste even today.
