ISOBIO research is achieving promising results in treating hemp shivs. The latest development by the innovation partner TWI lead to impressive results in terms of water repellence (up to 130° of water contact angle) and of hydrophobic properties (water contact angle, above 90° and maintaind for over 20 minutes).

These achievements are promisingly converging towards the main objective of developing bio-based materials with high insulating properties, low embodied energy, low embodied carbon and hygrothermally efficient.
