Consortium to develop bio-sourced composites using long bamboo fibres


A group of companies have come together to design bio-sourced technical composites for the aerospace industry based on long bamboo fibres.

Known as BAMCO (bamboo long fibre reinforced bio-based matrix composite), the aim is to reduce the environmental footprint of aircraft, as well as delivering benefits that extend well beyond the aerospace industry.

The consortium comprises Assystem Technologies, Arkema, Cobratex, Specific Polymers, Cirimat, Compositadour, Lisa Aeronautics and M├ęcano ID.
