Project: Functional fibre reinforced biocomposites

The main objectives of the FUNFIREBIC project are to produce biocomposites from functionalised wood fibres and biopolymers and to evaluate the feasibility of these biocomposites in injection moulded parts for different industrial applications in construction and automotive industry and consumer products. Furthermore, the aim is to elucidate both the chemical and physical factors as well as the process technical issues affecting the chemical and physical compatibility of between the fibre material and biopolymer matrix in biocomposites.
