Launch of the European project THERMOFIRE

We are glad to announce the launch of the European project THERMOFIRE – Bio-based fire-retardant thermoplastic composites reinforced with natural fibres - funded by Horizon Europe, started on June, 1st 2023.

The project THERMOFIRE has the objective to develop novel bio-based and recyclable composites with enhanced mechanical properties and fire resistance by using natural fiber reinforcements and bio-based halogen-free flame retardants. The production of these novel composite materials will be scaled up and 3 types of demonstrators will be developed (for aerospace, automotive and textile applications). Through the development of such advanced materials, THERMOFIRE will contribute in EU’s independence towards fossil based polymers.

Feedback on our Collective Mission in Japan

The mission to Japan was held the week of November 14-19, 2022. It followed the webinar presentation of innovative Japanese companies in September and the survey on the interests of our members.

The themes selected were bio-based materials and recycling techniques.

In partnership with ADERLY, Yukiko Sugiyama VINCENT and Jean-Jacques LEGAT were able to meet with a dozen Japanese companies to discuss these topics, which are at the heart of our roadmap. Not surprisingly, these topics have an international impact and the concern for the preservation of the planet and the reduction of the environmental footprint are also omnipresent in the discussions and ambitions of the companies and groups we met.
