Lightweight design is in the key interest of the mobility sector, e.g. the automotive industry. Additionally, the worldwide demand for replacing fossil-based with biobased materials has led to a significant growth of bioplastics in terms of technological developments. Due to their low mechanical performance and durability, their use is still limited. Therefore, it is necessary to develop biobased, sustainable polymeric materials with high stiffness, high impact and high durability without impairing recyclability at a similar price level of nonbiobased solutions. The development of such self-reinforced polymeric composites (SRPCs) is shown. This includes a hybrid yarn based approach for producing biobased PLA composites. Finally an outlook on further development of reinforcing biobased SRPCs is given.
