Advanced Manufacturing of Bio-Based Products for Urban outdoor applications through Innovative characterization, digital technologies and circular approach
AMBIANCE aims at developing novel bio-based products for urban outdoor applications through innovative characterization, digital technologies, and circular approach. The higher aim of AMBIANCE is to reduce the environmental impact and make sustainable and recyclable products a norm in European cities, by promoting sustainable manufacturing models, optimizing the manufacturing processes in the above applications, and ensuring the replicability of the results.The project will focus on 3 manufacturing value chains: sports facilities, outdoor furniture as well as construction bricks and decorative panels. For this last case, the manufacturing of decorative panels, RECENDT will develop a THz (Terahertz) sensor for moisture content evaluation in straw bio-based panels. The completed system at TRL 6 will be used to monitor moisture in installed panels at regular intervals, thus providing information relevant to the longevity of the panels under changing weather conditions.
