ECO-FRIENDLY SAFETY FOOTWEAR
FOREST-COMP has the goal of producing bio-composites on a large scale, starting from renewable forest and non-forest resources. Bio-based polymeric formulations based on thermoplastic and polyurethane will be studied and developed for the industrial production of “eco-sustainable” safety footwear.
In a corporate philosophy of “weareco”, Base Protection’s participation in the Forest Comp Project allows both to have innovative, high-performance, and low environmental impact outsoles, and to obtain greater visibility as an international industrial leader.
