Introduction of the first scientific publication on flax and hemp supports

Each section of the industry that had previously used large quantities of non-renewable fibers is now committed to an eco-conception approach. Structured to expand the technical knowledge of natural fibers, the CELC Technical Center coordinates the first scientific book on composite solutions for natural fibers. Published in tandem with the JEC-Group, a reference in the composite industry, this publication is the fruit of research by the CELC European Scientific Committee.


  • Vital information on natural linen and hemp fibers (identification of their complex structures).
  • Analysis of composite materials’ mechanical performances when reinforced by natural fibers (variations of specific properties based on the fiber’s transformation process, mastery of bio-degradability …) 
  • Evaluation of different types of linen and hemp support capacities based on special procedures (UD, weave, multiaxials, mats, pre-pregs, compounds) 
  • The structure of a production chain and organized retail to meet the industry’s mid and long-term needs
  • Development of industrial technologies that transform vegetation fibers into semi-products adapted to the needs of the composite industry.
  • An overview of current uses and prospectives for potential industrial applications.
