FibR GmbH

The Ministry of Food, Rural Areas and Consumer Protection Baden-Württemberg (MLR) has awarded a 2 million euro research grant to “ReGrow”, a project in which the Professur Digital Design and Fabrication (DDF) will participate together with FibR GmbH and other partners from the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT).

The project will investigate construction applications of natural fibres and fast-growing plant-based materials, which can be processed into load-bearing components using specially tailored digital manufacturing technology. The sustainable and recyclable lightweight structures developed in this project will be tested with full-scale research demonstrators at the 2023 German National Garden Show in Mannheim (BUGA23).

The project is funded within the framework of the Baden-Württemberg’s “State Strategy for a Sustainable Bioeconomy” (Landesstrategie Nachhaltige Bioökonomie Baden-Württemberg).
