Cement based composite (2016)

The idea is to provide a sustainable and recyclable material that could replace Fiber Reinforced Plastic for most low end applications, from water tanks to domestic furniture like tubs, sinks or even small fishing boats. The same technology could also be proposed to the construction industry for light shelters or elements for pre-fabricated homes.

The project will rely on the experience of several years of research carried by various institutions in fields of expertise specifically related to the topic of this project who could be engaged in a collaborative Global open design network. An on-line open design platform will be developed to support the collaboration between users of the technology and the academic or industry experts.
