H2020 2017 - SSUCHY - Sustainable structural and multifunctional biocomposites from hybrid natural fibres and bio-based polymers

The project SSUCHY falls within the framework of the development and optimization of innovative and eco-efficient processes and constituents for structural and multifunctional bio-based composites. It is fully integrated into the research program of the Bio-Based Industries (BBI) Joint Technology Initiative operating under Horizon 2020, and particularly focused on BBI Value Chains 1 which is dedicated partly to the transformation of lignocellulosic feedstock to advanced bio-based materials. Our project is clearly positioned on the development of composite constituents, based on a renewable resource (i.e. biopolymers and plant fibre reinforcements) for the development of multifunctional biodegradable and/or recyclable bio-based composites with advanced functionalities for applications in transportation (automotive and aerospace) and a high value market niche (acoustic and electronics).
It is dedicated to the development of specific concepts, technologies and materials to achieve a complete value chain and prove the principle at the scale of product demonstrators.
