Markets are currently dominated by the plastics or non-natural fibre composites. New biocomposites with an attractive appearance, better long-term and short-term properties and optimized processing are needed to meet the demands of different application areas.

New materials and their combinations are targeted taking into account the circularity potential of biocomposites in market. Different side-streams or waste streams as a source of raw material can offer new, sustainable ways for production. Development of the recycling routes for biocomposites is one of the key aspects of this study. Specific application areas will be decided based on the interest of participating industry.
