Dr. John Simonsen is partnering with EcNow Tech, a Corvallis company providing sustainable products to a variety of industries to produce a novel ice cream spoon. The project is funded by Oregon BEST and is just now getting underway. The new spoon will be compostable and made of a bioplastic filled with local renewable materials. Thus it will be compostable and sustainable.  See College of Engineering blog for more information.
