The objective of HI-FI is the development of an innovative process for the production of fiberboard out of annual plants, leading to a product with greatly enhanced molding capabilities. HI-FI will minimize the use of resources (wood, energy) and environment impact. The fiberboard produced with this new process will be an environmentally friendly superior quality product based on renewable and sustainable resources. Due to its high quality, HI-FI fiberboard will substitute materials in the automobile industry (molded internal parts) as well as in the other industrial areas (e.g. decorative moldable parts). This will improve competitiveness and increase employment in farming, fiberboard production, their end-users, the manufacturers of plant machinery and the suppliers of plant automation. It will also allow for an easy non-polluting disposal and recycling of the product after usage.
