BioBuild

Project Description

BioBuild produced biocomposite building components. Using flax fibres and polyfurfuryl alcohol resin, BioBuild made a cladding panel; 100% biocomposite with half the embodied energy of current industry standards. BioBuild also made a flax fibre-biopolyester façade panel which won the JEC Award for construction. The parts met the requirements for fire, mechanical strength, wind resistance, etc.
