Smart Circular Bridge for a Circular Built Environment

Three bridges are being built from biocomposites as part of an EU project. Natural plant fibres and biopolymers can now be used for load-bearing structures. This opens up exciting perspectives on sustainability and material circularity for future bridge structures. A Structural Health Monitoring System will ensure structural safety and provides new insights into the use of the materials in load-bearing structures.
