The main objective of the project is the development of compostable biopolymers for the production of fibres and non-woven textiles for automotive interiors. The products developed must comply with requirements such as thermal resistance and volatile emissions, as well as having some additional characteristics such as antimicrobial and anti-odour properties.


The main efforts in the project are focused on improving the intrinsic properties of current biopolymers so they comply with the requirements of automotive applications. To achieve this, new compounding technologies such as reactive extrusion, are being used. In addition, novel additives with antimicrobial and anti-odour properties are being developed and tested. Moreover, it is of key importance to assure that the developed compounds can be processed by melt spinning to obtain fibres and non-woven textiles that comply with the requirements of automotive applications.
