Development of low odour and low emissive biocomposites

Biocomposites are now used in various sectors such as transport and particularly automotive, construction (decking, cladding), sports, furniture and consumer goods.
During their processing in the melt (compounding, moulding), biocomposites could emit odours and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) due to the thermal degradation of the natural fibres which they contain.
Our research projects include the following topics:
development of high performance biocomposites with low environmental impact
improvement of mechanical properties
