With composites gaining larger market share for instance in planes, cars, etc., natural fibers are found in more and more applications as well. Together with the Natural fiber Application Center (NAC) we organize a workshop about bio-composites and other applications of natural fibers.
Biosurfactants have the potential to be used in a wide variety of applications. Drivers to use biosurfactants are to increase the biobased content of the end-product, to replace current substances which are to be banned from market, or their beneficial activity in the end application.
The BioBase4SME project (co-financed by Interreg NWE), offering bio-innovation support for SMEs, herewith proudly announces its Natural Fibertastic Workshop hosted at the Natural Fiber Application Center (NAC, The Netherlands) on April 5th, 2017.
This forum event aims to introduce innovative approaches in technology transfer for the bioeconomy, taking into account the specific requirements of life sciences. Therefore the forum will compare diff erent approaches in Germany and the Netherlands and will not only focus on the transfer from lab to industry, but will also take a broader view on open innovation approaches to create favorable conditions to stimulate collaboration between companies.
This workshop will be an opportunity to have a look at what is new in biobased paint. The day will start with a short state of the art realised by the CORI (Coatings Research Institute). Then, two topics will be studied in detail, one on the paint itself and the other on ingredients. Ingredients are the focus for development, they will lead us to 100% biobased paint.
The workshop will give an overview of current developments in the field of bio-based materials.
