JERUSALEM , Aug. 2, 2011 (Local News) -Researchers at the Hebrew University have developed a new method to convert waste fibers from the paper industry into non-synthetic foam that can be re-used.

The project was spearheaded by Shaul Lapidot, a PhD student of Prof. Oded Shoseyov, at the university's Robert H. Smith Faculty of Agriculture, Food and Environment in Rehovot.

The Melodea company licensed the product from the Hebrew University, and is now looking for seed money in order to bring the foam product to the market. That product has two parts, the microscopic fibers as well as the final foam material.
