The truly sustainable future with engineering materials will require completely new ways of creating materials. A significant part of emissions and energy consumption originates due to the processing of materials for various products, especially in the case of advanced composites. The more circular economy and recycling is to be applied, the more emphasis must be put on the processing of materials. In nature, the ‘processes’ of synthesis and material circulation are completely sustainable. This work includes actual field trials that were started during the year 2018 – aiming to the studies about the generation of fibre-reinforced visionary composites with the help of natural adhesion and cellular growth in pine trees.
