Composite materials, especially thermoplastic, are gradually becoming widespread in manufacturing sectors, thanks to their light weight. However, when using composites, the fossil origin of the raw materials cannot be ignored.
Another issue is the energy-intensive carbonization process needed to carbonise the precursor of carbon fibre.
Recently, an important R&D trend is replacing fossil-based thermoplastic by low environmental footprint thermoplastic, recycled or bio-sourced. This is where SUSPENS comes in, our ambition is providing to industry bio-sourced composites while ensuring that it will perform as well as conventional materials.
