Materials made of natural fibers

Pilot plant natural fiber processing: From the raw material to final products
Pilot plant natural fiber processing: From the raw material to final products

Natural fibers such as hemp are increasingly used in composite materials and as insulation and construction materials.
ATB is developing a process line for the fiber extraction starting from fresh harvest and processing of preserved fiber plant material up to the final, applicable product. The aim is to significantly reduce process costs and machinery investment while ensuring high product quality. In addition, new applications for plant fibers are being developed and tested.

Current research:

• Streamline the process for raw material supply lines

• Preservation of chopped fiber plants

• Processing and shredding of natural fiber materials

• Production of semifinished products and materials from plant fibers

• Application and testing of natural binders

• Production of pellets from preserved hemp and other natural fiber raw materials
