TEAM NAME: Plant Fibers of Morocco (MoroFiP)
VALUE PROPOSITION: Produce plant fibers that will be of better quality and with a lower price than those available in the market. We trust that, our use of local plant resources for a local production of these fibers, will enable us, owing to our well-defined bio-refining process to control the supply of the market at the long run.
PROBLEM ADDRESSED: Plant fibers are usable in many industrial sectors including civil engineering, composites, rope, weaving, etc.
The building sector and especially the production of plaster based materials is a consuming sector of plant fibers. In Morocco these fibers are exported from abroad and suffer from many problems such high price, changing quality and out of stock.
The process of natural fibers should be environmentally friendly to avoid ecological issue related to chemical or by product rejects.
APPLICATION SOLUTION: The main objective of our company is to produce plant fibers on a pilot scale from Moroccan agricultural biomass waste and endemic plant such as Halfa, raphia, reeds, etc. This is possible by combining eco- friendly chemical and mechanical treatments of these plants (biomass waste and endemic plants). On the other hand this project will solve environmental issue related to the enormous amounts of by agriculture products rejected each year, which in the most case are burned, which induces serious problem related to air pollution and human health in the surrounding areas. On the other hand this enable to have a local producer of these plant fibers and contribute to solve the problem related to out of stock, changing quality and high price.
