Natural Fibertastic workshop

On April 19th we put the spotlight on natural fiberbased materials and biobased building in practice.

In the morning, we expect international guests who will visit the regional biobased infra projects during a special bus tour. In parallel, Mr. Petter (mayor of Bergen op Zoom) will welcome the national participants.

During the morning sessions, project groups will have discussions within the scope of natural fiberbased material developments (closed sessions; people will be invited personally). In the parallel cluster "green (re)building of the Biobased Delta" there will be a meeting about the chances for biobased materials in the building sector.

The afternoon offers a plenary program (in English). Contractors will speak from their experiences about biobased materials in the infra projects (eg. Zoomlandviaduct, Tractaatweg, Biobased concrete etc.). Also new natural fiberbased products are presented by SME’s and Dr. ir. Yevgeny Lazko from Materia Nova will give a more scientific presentation about new pulping /retting methodes of lignocellulosic material, including their properties and applications. As a "setting the theme", the afternoon session starts with a presentation about the Dutch Circular Transition agenda of the construction and infrastructure.
