The private innovation company and engineering platform for industrial projects FRD promotes the emergence and development of innovative
applications for agricultural fibres.
FRD works within the “Industries et Agro-Ressources” (Industries and Bioresources) and acts as the cluster’s co-ordinating structure for
the plant-fibre-based materials sector.
Created at the behest of producers of plant fibres and reinforcements and major plant-chemistry players, FRD is the first unifying
industrial organization to bring 15% of all French plant-fibre production under its wing via its stockholders.
FRD has expertise in the full range of plant-fibre extraction and applicative implementation activities, from the plant all the way to end

CRT Labeling & CIR certification
Since January 1, 2019, FRD has been certified by the Ministry of Research as
a Technological Resource Center (CRT), thus recognizing our own technological and analytical means (tests, characterizations, analyzes ...) and or tailor-made (research , feasibility
studies, design assistance, development of prototypes ...).
FRD is thus the 1st CRT in France entirely dedicated to the recovery of
agricultural plant fibres in any field of application. This label guarantees the quality of advice and research provided to manufacturers, and in particular to SMEs French. This
label would not have been retained without the quality of the academic partnerships set up for many years. A big thank you to our team and our partners who have enabled us to gain recognition for our
As such, FRD is CIR approved for 2021 to 2022 annual period, recognizing its ability to conduct
research services, and providing for partial financial support to customers for research service fees.
