NCC FINDS SUSTAINABLE, COST-EFFECTIVE COMPOSITES ALTERNATIVE FOR INNOVATIVE SME
February 23, 2020 | Construction UK
The NCC has found a more sustainable, cost-effective alternative material for the subterranean pipes used by Magway, the innovative SME who develop ground-breaking sustainable transport solutions.
Magway were looking to apply their ground-breaking expertise in linear motors and control systems to create a transport network of underground pipes, aiming to address the explosive growth in online shopping.
The team of composites experts at the world-leading research centre showed that using renewable, biobased flax fibres offered a viable, more sustainable alternative to traditional reinforcement materials, while also reducing the overall cost of the pipeline in comparison to HDPE. The materials identified could represent a potential 50% reduction in material costs, and a 70% reduction in manufacturing costs.
