BARBARA Project

 

Biopolymers with advanced functionalities for building and automotive parts processed through additive manufacturing

 
 

The BARBARA project aims to develop new bio-based materials with innovative functionalities through fused filament fabrication (3D-printing). Food waste and agricultural by-products will be used to purify pigments, fragrances, reinforcing agents or biocide compounds, which will be incorporated into engineered bioplastics derived from corn processing industries. These new materials will be transformed into prototypes with customized porperties (mechanical and thermal resistance, surface or colour appearance, fragrance release or self-sanitizing surfaces) to be validated for their use in two highly demanding sectors such as the construction and automotive industry.

 

Applications

 

Automotive icon

Automotive

Demonstrator prototypes of door handles and dashboard fascia for cars with specific colours, fragrances, surface effects and antimicrobial capacities will be 3D-printed in collaboration with Centro Ricerche Fiat.

 

Building icon

Building

Moulds for Resin Transfer Moulding and truss joint prototypes will be developed to suit the strict thermal and mechanical requirements of pieces used in the building sector by ACCIONA Infrastructures.
