At BioComposites Group (BCG), they design and build products that exploit the extraordinary mechanical qualities of common plants and trees, such as industrial hemp and flax. Based in the Canadian prairies, they draw their raw material from local agriculture and forestry industries. Most of it was previously considered waste. Their scientists and engineers exploit the incredible qualities of the industrial hemp plant to create an ever-expanding range of products, with the potential to solve critical problems facing industries worldwide.
BCG manufactures a moldable natural fibre composite sheet product made primarily from hemp and other agricultural fibres. The composition of their mat can be customized to a particular application due to their unique ability to blend different fibres together.
BCG has developed multiple natural fibre solutions to a wide range of applications. By having the ability to blend different types of fibre together, the composition of their mats can be customized given the particular application. They strive to become the leader in natural fibre non-wovens.
