Flax and Hemp Fibre Composites, the Biobased Solutions for the Industry

Several examples of commercial products demonstrating how flax and hemp fibres and their composite solutions can meet manufacturer expectations

As renewable European resources, flax and hemp fibres are a major asset for bioeconomy.
The combination of their exceptional mechanical and environmental performances is amplifying sustainable innovation. Several commercial products will be presented and analysed in terms of composition, manufacturing, and performance. It will be demonstrated how flax and hemp fibres and their composite solutions meet manufacturer expectations in terms of performance and anticipate demands for sustainable development from both industrial customer and final consumer.
