GREEN-LOOP will demonstrate the manufacturing of wood composite bearings for Appliance & Tool Industry.
Wood composite bearings for Appliance & Tool Industry will be demonstrated in a bio-plastic manufacturing system (Injection system).
The wood composite bearing will be first validated at laboratory scale. The reinforcement of the matrix by natural wood fibers/particles will be then studied as well as the curing of the biopolymers. Once, optimized friction, wear and lifetime of the wood composites will be obtained, representative samples or components will be manufactured and integrated into real condition tests.
The MANUFACTURE INNOVATION will be based on MICROWAVES.
Characterization and standardization activities will be undertaken and the whole value chain will be monitored by the environmental and circularity partners, that will ensure the green manufacture.
This value chain could be replicated in other sectors such as building and material logistics.
