Abstract Roofing materials are high quality products with a long life-time, but are made mainly from fossil raw materials and its derivatives; like bituminous roofing based on the oil derivative bitumen, or synthetic membranes that are based on polymers stemming from the petroleum chemistry (Figure 1). The uncertainty of petroleum exploitation, the by consequence high fluctuations in price, as well as the CO2 footprint motivate us to look for alternative renewable raw materials. The target is to maintain the technical and functional characteristics.
