Styrofoam might great for all your packing needs, but the chemicals and processes needed to make it aren't exactly environmentally-friendly. As a solution to this, the researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute have successfully created an alternative made from actual wood.
The wood is first finely grounded into a slimy goop which then gets frothed. And unlike conventional insulating sprays, the natural materials in the wood will harden all by itself after it's been sprayed onto a surface.
The wood foam can also be produced in sheets just like the large panels of expandable polystyrene you can find at home building stores.
