Partnership objectives

BioStruct is a European project involving 10 partners aiming to promote the use of natural fibres as reinforcements in structural and technical composite parts.

Project actions and services to companies

  • Develop a precise draping process to control fibre orientation,
  • Create material models to capture the variability associated with natural fibres,
    Integrate bio-sourced sensors into nanostructures to control surface irregularities.
  • Two pilots will be developed as part of this project:
  • Developing a 6m-long wind turbine blade and a 6m-long motorboat.
