Wood-Based prepreg for downstream production of composite laminates
Unmet Need: Need for biobased prepreg There has been a rapid growth in research and innovation in the natural fiber composites (NFCs) as part of reducing environmental impact. NFCs are renewable, lightweight, energy efficient, and environmentally friendly. Glass/carbon fiber reinforced plastics (GFRP/CFRP) are mostly used in modern aircraft structures....
