This article provides the first results of qualification and control tests over BFRP conducted at the material Laboratory of the ENEA Trisaia Research Center, in collaboration with HG GBF, a Chinese company specialized in bsalt fiber manufacturing. HG GBF has provided all the needed material required by ENEA to execute tests; in particular, given the basalt fiber application areas consistent with ENEA policy purposes, fabrics with different weave, nets, basalt fiber rebar from φ8 to φ16, chopped fiber of different length, continuous basalt fiber. Tests are carried out by ENEA primarily to understand and research about the properties of a material - basalt fiber - that in the western world is not widely used and known. In many cases research are in progress and however are still limited to a limited number of applications.
