WP3 High-Performance Thermosetting Biocomposites

Lignin obtained from wheat straw and functionalized microfibrillated cellulose (MFC) resulting, will be transformed into a novel High-Performance thermosetting biocomposite made of a Lignin-Thermosetting resin reinforced with MFC films. 

The general objective of WP3 is, therefore, to come up with such a novel biocomposite formulation which is at least 50% bio-based and equals the mechanical properties of conventional phenolic systems using at least 10% less resin.
