Blackfabric’s #Bioprepreg in EuroBoosTEX

In an era where sustainability is not just a preference but a necessity, the textile industry faces significant challenges to adapt and innovate. EuroBoosTEX, a project co-funded by the European Union, exemplifies the power of collaborative innovation in the textile industry. This project, was designed to bolster the European textile sector’s digital and green transition, receiving substantial support to realize its ambitious goals. The EuroBoosTEX project, spearheaded by Texfire’s Blackfabric division, represents a monumental step forward. Aimed at revolutionizing the composites industry, this initiative has successfully developed a 100% bio-based and fully biodegradable fabric, utilizing natural flax fibers and PLA polymer. This breakthrough paves the way for a more sustainable future, significantly reducing the environmental footprint of traditional carbon fiber materials.


The EuroBoosTEX project was not just ambitious in its environmental goals but also in its technical achievements. The initiative’s success in creating a bio-based thermoplastic prepreg is a testament to the meticulous research and development process. By combining flax fibers with PLA polymer film, the project team overcame numerous technical challenges, ultimately producing a material with promising applications in industries committed to sustainability, such as automotive and aerospace.
