NEW 2014 RELEASED:
The industry sectors, users of non-renewable fibers, are now engaged in an eco-design approach. Structured to meet the demand of the Industry, JEC, the CELC’s European Scientific Committee and its industry’s R&D teams coordinated the first scientific book about the composite solutions natural fibers. « Flax and Hemp, a natural solution for the composite industry ».
Result of several years of research of the CELC’s European scientific committee, this unique technical book confirms the choice of fiber flax and hemp as an efficient eco-design initiative. It highlights the importance of an open-innovation approach in order to meet the need of the industry for the medium and long term.
This publication investigates the mechanical and specific properties of the flax and hemp for the reinforcement of polymer and evaluates their positive environmental attributes. The main goal is to upgrade the knowledge of fibers and preforms (UD’s, material, Infusion accessories, matt, prepreg composites, compounds etc.) and attract new industries.
All these studies are put into perspective with the analysis of processes in the work environment and industrialization. For this reasons, this publication is devoted to R&D engineers who use fibers, but also to all the composites value chain, and provides a detailed analysis and some thoughts for your reflection for:
