He has in-depth knowledge, understanding and respect as to the way business is conducted with specific regards, to culture, business ethics, potential, opportunity and risks. Having successfully commercialised a number of polystyrene-based pallet products Laurence identified the reliance upon the use of nonrenewable, finite resources and regulatory changes were forcing the pallet industry to find alternative raw materials and systems that must be environmentally acceptable and safe. In early 2007, Laurence set out to investigate, conceive and develop a completely renewable clean, green product, which had the potential to revolutionise the export pallet industry globally. Over the course of the next 2 years, various methods and materials were investigated for the production of alternative products.

Biofiba Managing Director Laurie Dummett says the product, developed with the help of the CSIRO, will save trees and burn less fossil fuels.

"This is a first in every sense of the word," he says.
"In six months a Biofiba pallet will look like a pile of pepper, it’s 100 percent biodegradable."
About 40 percent of timber harvest around the world is used to make pallets, according to Dummett.
"Export pallets are a massive problem for our environment in many ways. The vast majority are produced for one-way, one-time use," he says.
...
"We do feel like we are taking on the world, but the support and involvement of the CSIRO and AusIndustry is very encouraging and a sign that we are on to something significant," Dummett says.
