MACOBIO, part of the project cluster Low Carbon Footprint Materials 

Coordinator : Université de Mons
UCLouvain promotors : Christian Bailly (IMCN/ BSMA), Thomas Pardoen (IMMC)

The projects aims to study thermoplastic and thermoset matrix composites based on biosourced resins. The goal is to develop bio-based  materials as well as  the corresponding processing technologies. The ultimate ambition is to produce prototypes of functional parts, fully characterize them and compare their performance and carbon footprint to that of petro-based equivalents.
