ADVANCED LIGHTWEIGHT MATERIALS FOR ENERGY-EFFICIENT STRUCTURES
FOREST will develop novel lightweight multifunctional biocomposites as a competitive alternative to conventional composites. New chemistries will be developed based on bio-based materials in combination with fully recycled carbon fibre and EMI particles. FOREST will increase the focus area on the sustainability in circular economy by effective circularity solutions applied to multifunctional biocomposites constituents with over 50% sustainable materials contain in the lightweight products.
Technical and economic impacts
- 25% reduction of the cost of the production of selected parts and lightweight materials
- 20%reduction of CO2 emission
- Light-weight products containing >50% sustainable, bio-based materials
- Development of 100% recycled carbon fibre semi-finished materials
