Project Goals

Smart WPC aims to integrate add-on functionalities in WPC by incorporating thermally and electrically conducting fillers. Improving the electrical and thermal conductivity of otherwise non-conducting WPC’s without sacrificing the mechanical properties will open more application sectors. Another objective of the project is to develop manufacturing technologies to produce hybrid F-WPC with improved structural properties, Continuous cellulose fibre will be utilised as reinforcement for this purpose.

The project will fill the knowledge and technological gap that prevent the use of commercialised bio-based materials in functional and highly required structural applications in various industrial sectors. The targeted SMEs and industries are located geographically in northern Sweden and northern Finland.
