The methodology

Development of bio-based fibres with improved properties.

1

Development of bio-based fibres with improved properties

The mechanical properties will be compared to the ones obtained with commercially available reinforcement fibres.

2

Development of bio-based composite

Novel bio-based resins will be created from renewable resources with flame-retardants properties. This will be the basis of the thermoset composite.

3

Composite manufacturing process

Manufacturing process requirements will be adjusted for pultrusion, wet compression moulding and/or RTM.

4

Reprocessing, repairing & recycling

Reprocessing, repairing and recyclability of produced demonstrators will be validated via mechanical and chemical strategies.

5

Technical, economic and environmental assessment

Demo parts will be fabricated for automotive and construction sector: a rear seat back panel and a window profile.

The partnership

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.
