A team of scientists at the University of Tokyo have found a way to turn food scraps into materials strong enough to be used for construction projects.

With shocking levels of global food waste, amounting to hundreds of billions of pounds per year, a large proportion of  such waste comprises edible scraps, like fruit and vegetable peels.

Using a heat pressing concept, the team mixed food powder with water and seasonings to then press it into molds at high temperatures. 

Such innovation will be vital in helping global efforts to recycle food waste.
