Call for suppliers and users of biocomposites to engage with SeaBioComp project

The SeaBioComp project is looking to engage with suppliers and end users of bio-composites; especially in the field of products for the marine environment.

The project is focusing on the supply chain aspects of biocomposites and is developing a commercialisation action plan for the development of bio-composite products in the marine environment.

In particular we are looking to make contact with potential stakeholders and suppliers in the production chain, initially companies interested in biocomposites for the maritime environment, made via compression moulding, additive manufacturing or monomer infusion using RIFT techniques. We are keen to engage with monomer/polymer, fibres, additives, compounding and filament/textile companies to better understand the market including quality, prices, delivery etc.

In addition we would like to make contact with contractors and customers like water management companies who are looking to use the new biocomposite technologies in order to fully understand their requirements and cost implications.

This study into the value chain for biocomposites in marine applications will enable the project to produce some practical flyers to highlight the project demonstrators and their advantages compared to traditional materials, to identify innovations that are required and to list potential products of the future for example the use of biocomposites in areas such as ports and harbours.

To get more information on the specifications of the various biocomposite materials being developed by the SeaBioComp project please download the specification sheets available in the downloads section of the website; Flax/PLA/COPLA specification and self reinforced PLA composite.

Anyone wishing to be involved in these discussions can contact us via Leon Joore , Isabel De Schrijver and Elke Demeyer
