Objectives:

The main objective of the project is the development of novel biocomposites adapting the conventional processing techniques most used in the automobile industry and other innovative processing technologies to have its properties tailored to be validated for its introduction in a vehicle.

Description:

The principal research has  focused on the adaptation of available biopolymers (PLA, PHB) and the creation of a new protein-based biopolymer (SELP) for its use as the base matrix to be able to meet automotive standard requirements. To achieve that advance, it has been  necessary to improve the thermal characteristics of these polymers, the hydrolysis resistance, the dimensional stability and the volatile emissions. Therefore, throughout the  project,t new reinforcements and novel additives (like nanofillers, mineral fillers and treated natural fibres ) have been developed.
