Rowan Minkley (Chip[s] Board)

Rowan Minkley won a Shell LiveWIRE Smarter Future Award in July 2018 for his business, Chip[s] Board
Chip[s] Board takes waste by-products and turns them into high value materials. Their current product, Chip[s] Board, uses industrial potato waste to produce a sheet material with similar properties to MDF, suitable for flatpack furniture and other interior applications but with less harm to the environment. The product is an eco-friendly wood substitute, is biodegradable post-use and, unlike MDF, doesn’t contain toxic resins and chemicals. Chip[s] Board’s use of waste by-products in biodegradable commodities epitomises a circular economy, as the end-of-life furniture can be sent to composting facilities to help grow new potato crops.
