Agora 5

As renewable European resources, flax and hemp fibres are a major asset for bioeconomy. The combination of their exceptional mechanical and environmental performances is amplifying sustainable innovation. Several commercial products will be presented and analysed in terms of composition, manufacturing, and performance. It will be demonstrated how flax and hemp fibres and their composite solutions meet manufacturer expectations in terms of performance and anticipate demands for sustainable development from both industrial customer and final consumer.
