A number of demonstrators for material concepts were showcased at the final conference in June. Further development towards actual products is already under way for two of these; city bus seats and materials for musical instruments made from a new bio-composite. In these cases, nanocellulose, together with wood fibres, is used to reinforce bioplastics. The material can be produced using a paper machine and subsequently formed using regular process technology for plastics.
