Biobased components in concretes

Biobased materials are materials derived from biomass of plant or animal origin.
This report offers an overview of biobased materials used today in the construction industry.
They currently have applications in the field of building and construction as insulation materials or mortars and concretes (hemp concrete, wood fibers concrete, flax concrete, etc.). These materials are also used for the production of precast concrete products. Examples of these products (blocks, panels, noise barriers, etc.) are presented in this report, whether they are on the market or at the project stage.
