Maize is a crop grown across the
world primarily to feed cows, it is estimated to double in global demand between 2012 and 2050, which would make it the most frequently grown crop in the world. When maize is harvested, the husk of the crop is often not used as part of the animal feed, in which case it is either left on the field or burnt. My explorations investigate the viability of using maize husk to make biodegradable cladding and insulation materials.
