Steinbeis R-Tech is a partner of EU-funded project called BIO4SELF
In 2016, the EU launched a Horizon 2020 project called BIO4SELF with the aim of developing self-reinforced polylactic acid (PLA) composites able to offer superior mechanical performance compared to current self-reinforced poly propylene (PP). Steinbeis Advanced Risk Technologies (R-Tech) contributes to environmental footprint (life cycle assessment), life cycle costs, safety standards, and risk analysis. BIO4SELF (short for “biobased, self-functionalized, self-reinforced composite materials based on high performance nanofibrillar PLA fibers”) is receiving € 7 million of backing and involves 16 partners from science, applied research, and industry.
