Luc Ruys

R&D manager Functional Thermoplastic Textiles

I'm managing a dynamic team of young men and women who are performing research in the field of new polymer materials and processes, mainly destined for the textile and composite production sector. In line with the European strategy to reduce (plastic & textile) waste and to diminish the depletion of natural ressources, our team mainly focuses on the development of biobased polymer materials, recyclability, compostability and the amelioration of the intrinsic properties of biobased materials in view of their eventual replacement of oil-based materials and products.
