The Discovery Pod: Season 2, Episode 2

Welcome to The Discovery Pod, where we talk to leading experts from the University of Adelaide about solutions to society’s most pressing challenges. 

Our march to sustainable living is gathering pace. With Australia’s environment ministers banning all single-use plastics from 2025, an explosion of eco-friendly alternatives is emerging. And similar innovation is taking place in the construction industry.

Join our host, Isobel Marshall, as she discusses everything from rye-stalk straws to fungi-based packaging and recycled bitumen, with two University of Adelaide experts: plant molecular biologist Professor Rachel Burton, and sustainable construction specialist Professor Jian Zuo.
