Bioplastics for high-temperature applications in the automotive industry
Feasibility study to increase the material performance of thermoplastic bioplastics and bio composites on the exemplary use of a turbocharger ventilation pipe
The project will use a feasibility study to identify the potential for substituting petrochemical plastics in the engine compartment with bio-based plastics and composites. In order to find new, technically demanding fields of application for bio-based plastics, it is necessary to close the existing property gaps.
Deficiencies of bio-based materials are particularly evident in industries that require the use of high performance plastics. The project deals with the feasibility study on technical-technical solutions for bio-based high-performance plastics with special attention to engine compartment parts of the motor vehicle.
