Cheer Project India

100% Biobased Biocomposite Made From Pine Needles

'Cheer Project' is a research into pine needles in which this abundant and unwanted material is developed into a 100% bio-based and compostable composite material. By separating fibres of the needles through shredding, new applications and possibilities are created. The fibre is further developed into a composite with the help of natural binders and waxes. The developed material is 100% bio-based, compostable, recyclable, fire retardant, water repellent and causes no pollution or waste in the process. It is a solution that tackles the global plastic issue, locally.
