FENAFA Network


Holistic supply, processing and manufacturing strategies for natural fibre-based raw materials

03/01/2008 - 04/30/2014

Funding Body:
Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF)

The network's main objective was the industrial implementation of new production concepts for the use of native natural fibre raw materials in innovative applications. High priority was placed on uninterrupted value chains spanning from agricultural plant production to the marketable product.

SACHSENLEINEN was the FENAFA network coordinator of 


  • subproject 1: development of a mobile technology for the provision of prefabricated whole plant raw materials (focus on green flax)


and contributed substantially to the realisation of


  • subproject 2: serial production-ready concepts for separating and cutting as well as targeted cleaning and conditioning for the extraction of whole plant-based short fibres as a natural fibre raw material for impact extrusion and injection moulding processes.
