Analytical protocols for bio-composites

Work Package 3 of the SeaBioComp project has seen project partners University of Portsmouth, VLIZ and Ifremer developing analytical protocols to test the bio-composite materials.

The team are working on the long-term durability of the materials through testing in simulated and real-life seawater as well as ecotoxilogical effects including leachates and microplastic formation.

The results of these tests and protocols will enable life-cycle analyses to be put together for the various materials.
