Abstract

Extract from the executive summary: A collaborative scoping research project to identify plant oil species with potential value in the production of fibre composite resins and assess their suitability to Queensland’s regions has been conducted by QDPI&F, USQ and Loc Composites Pty Ltd. The use of plant-oil based resins in the production of fibre composites will contribute to the Queensland economy through establishing sustainable high technology building products from renewable sources while decreasing the reliance of resin production on fossil fuels.

The main objective of this project was to indentify a suite of plant oil species that show agronomic adaptability to the Australian environment (e.g. climate, soils) and economic viability of extracting plant oils for resin production within a highly competitive supply and demand production market.
