ADDITION OF NATURAL FIBRES INTO VIRGIN AND RECYCLED POLYMERIC MATRIXES
The main objectives of this project are the development of high-performance composites using waste materials (wood fibres and recycled plastics) and the optimization of the suitable technology for manufacturing these plastics.
These new composites enable to produce several marketable products: panels and profiles for construction and, cans and barrels for food packaging.
