Agro-materials are materials composed from agro-resources. They can be produced using one component or a mixture. This is the case with agro-composites, for example, which mainly combine biobased polymers (starch, cellulose, etc.) and plant fibres (flax, hemp, etc.).

Today, in accordance with technical specifications, biorefining can be used to produce efficient agro-materials: flax concrete, hemp concrete, flax or hemp insulation, cellulose wadding, biobased plastic, composites for vehicles reinforced with plant fibres, etc.

Several markets use agro-materials: Automobile, Aeronautics, Building and Public Works, Packaging, BioMedicine, BioMechanics, Plastics, Capital Goods, Electrical Engineering and Transport
