Abstract

VTT has long experience in developing biocomposites for several application areas. Biocomposites are materials consisting of bioplastics, natural fibres and/or fillers and additives, which are also preferred to be biomass-based. The utilisation of non-food resources will be one of the main issues and drivers in material development. The variety of biomaterials, the number of material combinations, processing technologies and potential applications offer extensive opportunities but there are many challenges that must be overcome during the development of biocomposites and bioplastics. The next generation of biomaterials are being developed through advanced processing and nanotechnology. This publication gives overview of the research activities and main achievements at VTT in this area.
