F/LIST joins research consortium to bring renewable materials to aviation interiors

Composites for aviation that are made from 100 % renewable raw materials, and which not only have excellent properties, but are also decorative: that’s the goal of the BioForS project consortium. The aim is to replace conventional fire-resistant lightweight components for aircraft interiors, which include sheets made from fossil raw materials. 

“We aim to make aviation more sustainable. In this project, we tackle the challenge of bringing green and renewable structural materials into the aircraft cabin,” explains Patrick Domnanich, Director Research & Development, F/LIST.
