A new system to process date farming byproducts into a range of upcycled materials

Dateform is a project that proposes a blueprint for the use a palm dates byproducts to create new materials, products, and solutions. At the basis of Dateform are date seeds, a nutrient-rich byproduct which is widely available in the Emirates and in many other countries. Some of the products that can be developed from date seeds are biodegradable food containers, date seed coffee, natural cosmetics, alternatives to wood, replacements for small plastic components, and a natural textile dye. These products can support new business ventures and help support a circular economy.
