Maize Matter. During harvesting, the easiest and least expensive way to get rid of the waste in maize production is through ‘slash and burn’ techniques. This releases dioxins, which have harmful effects on health and the atmosphere. This project is about repurposing this waste into new functional materials; eliminate damaging agricultural activities as well as providing an extra income for farmers.
