Development of bio-based fibres with improved properties.
Development of bio-based fibres with improved properties
The mechanical properties will be compared to the ones obtained with commercially available reinforcement fibres.
Development of bio-based composite
Novel sustainable and biobased epoxy resins were prepared from BPA-free and non-toxic precursors that could be extracted from renewable resources. This is the basis of the thermoset composite.
Composite manufacturing process
Manufacturing process requirements will be adjusted for pultrusion, wet compression moulding and/or RTM.
Reprocessing, repairing & recycling
Reprocessing, repairing and recyclability of produced demonstrators will be validated via mechanical and chemical strategies.
Technical, economic and environmental assessment
Demo parts will be fabricated for automotive and construction sector: a rear seat back panel and a window profile.
A consortium of 13 partners from 8 different European countries has been formed to meet the marked objectives. 6 partners are SMEs, 6 partners are research institutions, and there is also 1 academia from different sectors necessary to complete the value chain of the project.
