SeaBioComp project attracts interest in academic papers

The SeaBioComp academic partners have been active in disseminating research outputs of the project by publishing papers in various scientific journals and judging by their submission success rate, there is strong interest in the subject of bio-polymer composites.

The University of Plymouth have had their article 'Monomer selection for in-situ polymerisation infusion manufacture of natural fibre reinforced thermoplastic matrix marine composites' article published in MDPI Polymers journal. Their article can be downloaded from the SeaBioComp website at or on the MDPI site at

Project partner VLIZ has included details of the SeaBioComp project in the publication, 'Overview of the research landscape and scientific information on marine litter and microplastics in Belgium'. A copy of the publication can be downloaded at the following link:

The University of Plymouth has also had a paper published on 'In Situ Polymerisation of L-lactide: Process Optimisation for PLA Matrix Composite Production' in the scientific journal Fibrenamics Science in June 2021. See link for details

John Summerscales and his colleagues from the University of Plymouth has also published on the topic of marine debris in the I.M3 scientific journal of the Institute of Materials, Minerals & Mining.

Most recently the SeaBioComp Work Package 3 (WP3) partners, namely, University of Portsmouth, Ifremer and VLIZ have had their paper entitled, 'The Long-term durability and ecotoxicity of biocomposites in marine environments: a review' published in the Royal Society of Chemistry (RSC) Advances.
