1 LINEN AND HEMP, FIBRES OF EXCELLENCY Green fibres focused on innovation and performance APPLICATIONS IN THE FIELD OF MOBILITY London, December 15, 2009

2 INTRODUCTION TO CELC MASTERS OF LINEN

3  Founded in 1951  A non-profit European agro-industrial organization  A whole filiere: members companies 14 members countries  Europe = the biggest producer of flax fibre CELC MASTERS OF LINEN ORGANIZATION WHO IS CELC MASTERS OF LINEN?

4 CELC creates an environment conducive to the competitiveness of industrial enterprises in an international context by  Stimulating communication  Coordinating innovation  Proposing promotional activities  Creating interest + opportunities  Encouraging dialogue between national + European public powers CELC MASTERS OF LINEN ORGANIZATION INTRODUCTION TO CELC MASTERS OF LINEN

5 MISSIONS WHO IS CELC MASTERS OF LINEN? Communication & Events Innovation Textile Innovation Non textile Technical Uses - Tradeshows - Newsletters - Journal - Trend books - Textile Development - The European Scientific Committee

6 MARKET FOR FLAX FIBRES

7 THE STORY OF FLAX

8  Growing  Pulling FROM THE SEED… TO THE PLANT

9  Scutching FROM THE PLANT… TO THE FIBRE  Retting on the ground

10 FLAX AND HEMP, GREEN FIBRES

11  Socially responsible  Economically viable  Recognized for its environmental qualities No irrigation No defoliant Rotative culture Entirely natural process Each part of the flax plant is used to make a final product Product made out of flax can be 100% recycled FLAX & HEMP, GREEN FIBRES SUSTAINABILITY

12  The Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) and its Eco-Profile according the ISO standards  “Linen growing have positive effects on the agricultural diversity of eco-systems, offering a welcome environmental pause to benefit ground quality, bio-diversity and landscapes.” Source : EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT ADVISORY COMMISION REPORT, Brussels, May 20, 2008 FLAX & HEMP, GREEN FIBRES PUBLICATIONS

13 A CONFEDERATION FOCUSED ON INNOVATION

14 CELC look towards the future and to new outlets beyond textiles such as composites products with technical values A CONFEDERATION FOCUSED ON INNOVATION Organize European competences Encourage Research Be the link between the filiere and the industry A coordinator A project manager A technical referent A dedicated team: Strategic partnerships: Creation of a Technical Uses Pole since 2005 KU Leuven University Material ConneXion

15 MISSIONS AND GOALS  The state of the art  Mutualization  European Research  Edition of the 1 ST popularization publication THE EUROPEAN SCIENTIFIC COMMITTEE

16 Christophe BALEY (FR) Joel BRÉARD (FR) Gerhard ZIEGMANN (DE) Jörg MÜSSIG (DE) Mark HUGHES (UK) Joris VAN ACKER (BE) Hans LILHOLT (DA) Ignaas VERPOEST (BE), PRESIDENT Joris BAETS (BE), COORDINATOR THE EUROPEAN SCIENTIFIC COMMITTEE

18 APPLICATIONS IN TRANSPORTATION MEANS

19  Environmentally-friendly image  Mecanical properties: Lightness Vibration absorption Soundproofing Flexibility and stiffness  Cost WHY FLAX & HEMP FIBRES? APPLICATIONS IN TRANSPORTATION MEANS

20  The Ford T as a pioneer FROM TEXTILE APPLICATIONS TO TRANSPORTATION MEANS APPLICATIONS IN TRANSPORTATION MEANS

21  First applications in automotive industry:  Flax mats in car doors  Other applications:  Under bonnets  Vehicle’s interior parts  … FROM TEXTILE APPLICATIONS TO TRANSPORTATION MEANS APPLICATIONS IN TRANSPORTATION MEANS Random mat

22  Recycling more from cars Regulatory constraints about recovery/reusing end-of-life vehicles  Brussels directions: a recovery/reuse rate of 85% car weight in 2012 a recovery/reuse rate of 95% car weight in 2015  Polluting less From 25% to 30% lighter Lower energy consumptionless carbon emissions WHY FLAX & HEMP FIBRES? APPLICATIONS IN AUTOMOTIVE

23 Citroen C4 interior door panel APPLICATIONS IN AUTOMOTIVE

24 Smart ForTwo dashboard APPLICATIONS IN AUTOMOTIVE  Flax/PP composite  Production in series

25 APPLICATIONS IN AUTOMOTIVE Peugeot 207 side-view mirror structures Made from PP + 30% hemp

26 Toyota Prius 1/X concept car APPLICATIONS IN AUTOMOTIVE Weight reduction: from 420 kg to 1275 kg Consumption reduction: from 2.17 L/100 km to 4.1 L/100 km

27 APPLICATIONS IN AUTOMOTIVE BENEFITS FROM USING NATURAL FIBRES  25-30% reduction in weight  43% reduction in water consumption  14% reduction in carbon emissions  14% reduction in energy consumption Source: PSA
