The project BioBase has received a positive grant notice and startetd its work. Led by Institut für Textiltechnik der RWTH Aachen University and AMIBM the project focuses on biobased fibre and textile demonstrator development.
The goal of the BioBase project is to replace established petroleum based with biobased polymers focusing on the textile industry. Introducing biobased alternatives that are equal in use and functionality shall showcase their potential in the market. Research findings will be transferred to other products and industries. Part of the project is to examine the entire supply chain in order to uncover further research and development opportunities. These can be implemented in further subprojects within the innovation space.
