ECO-COMPASS in Science China Technological Sciences
A paper prepared by some of the ECO-COMPASS partners has been published in open access in a special issue of SCTS.
The article, co-authored by Jens Bachmann (DLR), Carme Hidalgo (LEITAT) and Stéphanie Bricout (Airbus), is entitled "Environmental analysis of innovative
sustainable composites with potential use in aviation sector – A Life
Cycle Assessment Review". The motivation for this paper is to give an overview of potential
environmental properties of eco-materials in aviation. Life
Cycle Assessment (LCA) is a tool to calculate environmental impacts
during all life stages of a product. The main focus is laid on the
bio-fibres flax and ramie, recycled carbon fibres and bio-based
thermoset resin systems.
