Arc Atlantic, France

The French Atlantic Arc region (Pays de la Loire, Normandie, Bretagne, Nouvelle-Aquitaine) is known for its production of straw and fibre crops, such as flax and hemp. These crops can be used to produce paper, textiles and construction products. Due to changes in French building regulations, the market for bio-based insulation products is growing at a fast pace. This provides great opportunity for the use of fibre crops for the insulation of buildings. Different scenarios regarding the growth of the bio-based insulation market have been taken into account. The full reports are available for download here:
