Development of innovative flax fibre reinforcements for composite applications (automotive, advertising and sailing industries)

The project aims to develop flax fibre reinforcements produced locally for the composite industry at a lower cost. The outcomes of this project will enable to achieve the aspirations of using sustainable, cost effective and environmentally friendly lightweight composites as a viable alternative for automotive, advertising and sailing sectors.

Led by the University of South Brittany, FLOWER brings together 4 academic partners (University of South Brittany in Lorient, INRA in Nantes, University of Cambridge and University of Portsmouth) and 4 industrial partners (the companies Kaïros, Teillage Vandecandelaère, EcoTechnilin and Howa-Tramico) located on both sides of the English Channel. Partners complementarity allows to span the entire value-chain, from the agricultural production of flax fibres to the R&D of materials and the commercialisation of end-products in industries
