When we talk of the non-food applications of agricultural resources, we immediately think of material applications. Indeed, they have been used to make many different everyday objects. The sectors in which they have been used most frequently are the construction industry, new plastics, composites, packaging, etc
Research has been carried out on how to create materials similar or superior to ‘classic’ products in terms of thermal, acoustic, mechanical or molecular transport (food contact ...) constraint. The aim here is to make use of the renewable nature of these resources and especially their ability to replace fossil-based resources.
