NetComposites Ltd, the organiser of EcoComp 2019, has issued a call for papers. Ecocomp 2019, which takes place at the Coombe Abbey Hotel, Coventry UK on 19-20 June 2019, will focus on composite materials derived from sustainable sources.
Ecological awareness has stimulated an increased interest in sustainable materials, and issues such as recyclability and environmental responsibility are becoming ever more important for the introduction of new composite materials and products. Environmental legislation and consumer demand are increasing the pressure on manufacturers and end-products to consider the impact of their products at all stages of their life cycle. These issues continue to generate considerable interest in the development of composite materials based on renewable resources, with environmentally friendly and affordable alternatives for conventional fibres and polymers enabling the development of true bio composites.
Prospective authors are invited to submit a 250-word abstract addressing topics such as:
– Natural fibre reinforcements
– Recycled fibre reinforcements
– Wood fibre composites
– Bio-derived resins
– Biodegradable composites
– Durability and testing
– Life cycle studies
– Recycling of composites
– Case study applications
The deadline for abstracts is the 5th of November 2018, and all successful authors will be notified by November 30th.
