The project focuses on studying and developing a machine which produces a natural water proofing solution which is biodegradable, and can potentially replace plastic as a packaging material. beeswax has been used as a natural sealant since 800 B.C. the property of beeswax of repelling water is what the project is based on. The development of the machine is designed after studying an old American recipe, used by local hunters. The solution can be used on surfaces to make them parched. application of the solution on paper or fabric can. The cloth used for wrapping Egyptian mummies contained beeswax.
