New Product: Ceramic-Like Tiles Made Entirely of Fish Scales.
To come up with a renewable, biodegradable design material that eliminates a landfill waste stream, French designers propose covering the walls of your home with fish scales. In reality, the idea is an elegant tile made from fish scales. It's called Scalite, and it separates then combines naturally occurring minerals and the collagen in the fish scales to create a beautiful, durable, naturally fire-resistant tile. While it's difficult to zero in on reliable supply chains of fish scales, even on the most recycling-conscious continent of Europe, the square or rectangular tiles of Scalite are priced in between common natural stone like white Corian and marble, at about $35 per square foot.
