TITLE: Green and recyclable and / or compostable composite products
with improved properties of industrial hemp waste in the context of the circular economy
PROJECT CODE: Τ2ΕDΚ-00008
The constant increase in the world's population leads to a reduction in natural resources and a downgrading of the sustainability of the natural environment. In the materials sector, and in particular the wood/polymer composites, a solution could be the replacement of natural wood from agricultural crop residues and the synthesis of polymers from renewable raw materials or recyclable/biodegradable materials, so that the final product can be recycled or biodegradable.
