The innovation in bio-based composites is growing strongly since the past ten years. It focuses on the use of natural fibers as reinforcement, on the development of resins with an increased bio-based share and finally on the interactions between these natural fibers and the resin matrix.
As innovation catalyst, the IAR cluster takes part in this innovation process, supporting collaborative R&D projects initiation and monitoring. It is also the ambassador of these new products through its website www.agrobiobase.com, the international showcase of bio-based products.
To carry further and faster the development of these products and their associated sectors, IAR – The French Bioeconomy Cluster and the technical section of the European Confederation of Flax and Hemp (CELC) have joined their forces and put their skills together on:
- Projects Engineering
- Promotion & Communication
- Business intelligence & Monitoring tools
To further boost the development of the bioeconomy and bio-based materials at national level, IAR and the CELC technical cluster have combined their skills and expertise. It ease the mutualisation of resources from agri-industrial sectors, scientific research networks and companies directly in touch with customer expectations.
The IAR’s Bio-based materials Committee and the Agrobiobase are pleased to introduce their full range of bio-based solutions for your composite applications with the edition 2017 of this booklet.
