Lupine in review. Lupinus Nootkatensis is a legume, it has been successful in reclamation
of sterile soil in Iceland since 1945 when it was imported from Alaska. The lupine is invading perishable
areas in Iceland. A number of people are trying to get rid of it because of
this ability, only seeing its flaws.
The lupine is an interesting plant for its ability to produce nitrogen, it provides nutrition
for itself and other plants as well, it is sustainable. Its construction is protein, ash, minerals and cellulose, Lignin
is the main cellulose. We found it interesting to investigate the lupine, to do a material research on its potentials for raw material. Try to produce a biodegradable product without any additives. Succeeding this task, could give the lupine a
second opportunity on a new basis.
