First industrial project partners for BB100
Period 3 2018
In the last period, the first two industrial partners sign the collaboration contract with UM and will help to produce demonstrators from the new materials developed in BB100 project. Heartily welcome to Huisman Tricot B.V. and Weverij Flaxco.
Huisman Tricot B.V. is a flatbed knitter that produces in the Netherlands and additional to interior, kitchen and clothes textiles, they have an own brand for baby fashion knitwear. This poses a great chance for the BB100 project, as we develop biobased and non-toxic additives for a new kind of 100% biobased fabrics.
The Weverij Flaxco is a Belgian company known for their woven composites from hemp and flax. Both companies are interested to go the next step into a more sustainable textile industry.
