Proceedings from the BIO-BASED MATERIALS Forum (JEC Paris 2011) focusing on performance meeting sustainability.


When performance meets sustainability
 


The Green movement is now accepted and pervasive throughout the economy. In composites, many have seen the potential with strong investments in the sector though sales, at times, have not met expectations.


Major reasons for using natural fibers are reduced weight, superior environmental balance, reduced costs and the possibility to manufacture complex structural elements. Questions are about the cost benefit of natural alternatives in addition to the added challenges of consistency in quality control.


In this forum, we will see that Bio-based materials composites can now be produced with strongly improved stiffness and strength. Fibers such as flax, hemp, typha have penetrated the automotive, construction, sports and leisure industries and further opportunities exist with continued innovation.
