BIO4SELF receives the techtextil innovation awardhome

After being rewarded with the International JEC Innovation Award for Sustainability on March 13, 2019, the BIO4SELF concept of a self-reinforced PLA composite material, developed in the European H2020 project, now received the TechTextil Innovation Award for Sustainability at the TechTextil fair in Frankfurt am Main, the number one fair for technical textiles in the world.

PLA is the polylactic acid derived from agriculture products, fully biocompatible. Thanks to the research carried out with BIO4SELF project, biocompatible composite-based components were produced, like the one in the picture, being a car set shell made of self-reinforced PLA.

BIO4SELF results give hope to the scientific and industrial communities for the future realization of biocompatible industrial applications, featuring high level performances.
