Autumn 2019 sees us dipping our toes into the world of extracting chemicals from trees.  Having failed chemistry at School we our instead working with Sheffield University chemistry department to run a series of undergraduate experimental workshops starting very simply in year 1 extracting Eucalyptus Oil from a variety of Eucalypt types growing in Devon to compare the potential of different species.  We hope this will be the start of a long collaboration with Sheffield and in the world of distillation leading to work on the hugely varied complex chemicals in trees that lend themselves to many high-value uses in pharmaceuticals, cosmetics and other industries.  We firmly believe there is a bridge to be made between “low-value” standing trees and high-value chemical products using digital processes and distributed manufacturing technologies.
