Biobased Delta hosted the Pilot General Assembly 2021 edition in physical and digital mode at the end of September. Researchers, entrepreneurs, politicians meet to discuss and share the latest industrial results to enhance natural fibers. New collaborations and business opportunities are triggered thanks to a program full of seminars, demonstrations, matchmaking sessions and the Biobased Safari, a physical tour among the biobased circular examples built in Bergen op Zoom. Participants got the opportunities to visit benches made with elephant grass in Anton van Duinkerken Park, a floating bridge made of Accoya wood, and the Zoomland viaduct with bio-composite reinforced with natural fibers. The safari ended with a visit to the Plastic Application & Training Center located in the Delta Agrifood Business centre.
