Green Deal braucht nachhaltige Materialien

30.06.2023

Um den Klimawandel und seine Auswirkungen auf unseren Planeten zu stoppen, ist es unabdingbar, den CO2-Fußabdruck von Produkten zu reduzieren. Naturfaserverstärkte Verbundwerkstoffe (NFC) und tragende Holzwerkstoffe sind dabei eine Basis für hochleistungsfähige, umweltfreundliche Leichtbauwerkstoffe. Auch das Recycling dieser Werkstoffe wird in Österreich vorangetrieben.
