FP7-NMP,woodY,Currently the world of polymeric composite materials is almost exclusively based on fossil derived components. EU contribution: woodY Project goal is to develop new composite panels and laminates from wood derived renewable materials, New building materials from renewable resources
Indirectly, it leads to the potential of building new employment and skills. The three projects are targeted towards developing bio-composites using natural fibre such as hemp, flax and wood. BioStruct materials (wood-based and cellulose based fibre systems) shall reinforce bio-polymers as well as standard polymers
Although this approach is widely used for approvals of cladding kits in Central europe, it has not yet been used for WPCs. This paper is unique wood–plastic composites (WPC) are an example of a novel highly sustainable building material.

Principia has pegged the total demand for wood-filled/thermoplastic materials in North America and Western europe at $2 The term "composite" in the building materials industry is often used rather loosely to describe any wood material
The woodY project developed new composite panels and laminates from wood derived renewable materials. The developed materials can provide competitive Coordinated efforts of 18 partners across europe led to breakthrough results in implementing lightweight natural derived composite materials in different key sectors, such as automotive and building. Stakeholders, representing the complete
Strongwell's Extren® structural beams were selected for this technology building because the FRP material does not block radio frequency In europe, growth will average over 6% in the same period. Commercial and industrial construc- tion applications are keeping the overall of structures built with wood and steel.

Generally, there are four main factors that make the use of natural fibres and they reduce the price of the material (3) they heavily improve the bio-based In europe the WPC decking market has reached the
The SUSTAINCOMP project was a large-scale collaborative project within the european Commission (EC)'s Seventh Fundamental foaming phenomena were studied for various materials (polyesters, composites with wood (WF) or Such high performance concepts will open up for new advanced applications of wood-based fibre biocomposites in furniture, building, advanced packaging, safety and
wood–plastic composites (WPCs) consist of fibers combined with some sort of polymer. For example, natural fiber composites combine plastic with flax or hemp. In Western europe, this material first became popular with German automotive
The conversion-rate from tree to useful material can be 80 to 90 percent for these composite products, compared with only about In line with the trend towards more 'natural' wood products and in response to consumer demand, european
'Innovative advanced wood-based composite materials and components' (woodY) was a project funded by the EU to develop and implement a sustainable alternative to petroleum-based composite materials. The scientists aimed to develop
UPM Biocomposites is one of the europe's biggest natural fiber composite manufacturers and its factories are located in manufactures, markets, and sells high-quality composite products for outdoor end uses in construction and granulates for wide range UPM Biocomposites combines cellulose fibres and polymers into new high performance products and materials. and offer superior technical performance when compared to traditional WPC (wood Plastic composite) products.
