INTERREG SUDOE – NABITEX   

Year: 2018

Programme: INTERREG SUDOE

Project Title:  Innovative technical textiles, developed from natural fibers, for application in the habitat     

Acronym: NABITEX

Project Code: SOE2/P1/P0524 

Duration: 01/04/18 – 31/03/2021

Amount: 131.250,00€

The INTERREG SUDOE NABITEX project (Innovative technical textiles, developed from natural fibers, for application in the habitat, SOE2 / P1 / P0524) lasts 36 months (01/04/18 – 03/31/2021) and It is made up of 7 entities of the scientific-technological system and 2 companies, with different and complementary competences at the National / Regional level, guaranteeing the existence of the entire value chain from the scientific, technological development and the industrial implementation of the project results. . The project is coordinated by the Technological Center of Textile and Clothing Industries of Portugal (CITEVE) and includes: Pedro Nunes Institute -Associação para a Inovação e Desenvolvimento em Ciência e Tecnologia (IPN) (Portugal), Têxteis Penedo S.A. (PENEDO) (Portugal), Institut Catholique d’Arts et Métiers (ICAM) (France), University of Pau and the Countries of the Adour (UNIV-PAU) (France), Ecole Nationale d’Ingénieurs de Tarbes (ENIT) ( France), Textile Industry Research Association (AITEX) (Spain), Association for the Incorporation of New Technologies to Business (ASINTEC) (Spain) and  Ángel Ruiz Ibáñez, S.A. (GEOPANNEL) (Spain).

 

BACKGROUND

The project aims to expand the range of application of existing natural fibers in the SUDOE * area. Previous projects have focused on natural fibers and how they can be used in many sectors, such as apparel, transport or Personal Protective Equipment. Knowing that the survival of the textile industry necessarily involves the manufacture of high-value technical products and that the collective awareness of the demand for products of biological origin is increasing drastically, this project proposes the application of the experience acquired in the development of technical products from natural fibers in other sectors such as the home textiles sector (decoration) or composite materials for construction (insulation panels and specific structural elements for construction).

OBJECTIVES

The NABITEX project aims to promote innovation and development of SMEs in the textile and construction sector of the SUDOE region through the valorisation of natural resources (natural fibers), using them in the development of innovative technical products, contributing to the increase of the competitiveness of the companies in the region through cooperation between different actors. The main objective is to promote the incorporation of these fibers in solutions for the habitat segment (textiles and construction materials). With a particular focus on the natural fibers produced in the SUDOE region, such as hemp, the project will develop and make the industry aware of innovative, sustainable solutions that will reinforce the differentiation of the industry in this region.

RESULTS

During the execution of the project, R&D activities will be developed in 3 technical groups: Preparation and treatment of fibers / threads, Development of solutions for home textiles and Development of textile and composite-based solutions for construction, the latter being coordinated by AITEX. These activities will lead to obtaining prototypes based on eco-design developed with natural fibers for the textile-household sector and prototypes of composite products reinforced with natural fibers, in particular hemp, for the field of construction.

By playing an important role in Europe, and in particular in the SUDOE region, but with strong competition from Asian countries, companies in the textile and construction sector, in particular SMEs, will have access to technical knowledge that will allow them to generate products innovative / sustainable and consequently new business opportunities.

At the level of the primary sector, NABITEX will be able to strengthen this sector by increasing the production of natural fibers in this region once the flow of these products increases, the destination being the same region.
