On 31st January 2017, the Osirys Project consortium will be holding a project workshop to deliver its results to the construction industry as a parallel session at CompIC 2017 (Composites in Construction Conference), Amsterdam.
Indoor air quality and emissions from building materials has been, over recent decades, a major challenge for scientists, industry and consumers as traditional construction materials contribute to contaminants.
The Osirys project has been developing technology to improve indoor environmental quality and energy efficiency by evolving forest-based biocomposites and products for façades and interior partitions. These new technologies can then be applied in retrofitting and new building construction.
The workshop will look at drivers for the use of bicomposites in construction as well as factors affecting design and manufacturing. The workshop will end with an open discussion. The session is free-to-attend, but places are limited. Join in the discussion by registering at osirysproject.eu/registration.
Attendees are also recommended to attend CompIC 2017, which will take place on 31st January and 1st February at the same location. For more information visit http://compositesin.construction.

Following on from two successful events in 2016, Dark Matter Composites and Composites UK are again teaming up to provide a seminar on risks, generation, capture and control measures for both carbon and glass fibre dust.
Mikrosam is launching an innovative machine that integrates AFP head for thermoset and ATL head for thermoplastic prepreg laying into a single robotic cell for custom development of structural composites.
Based in Hamburg, Germany, Lütje Yachts manufactures individual sailing- and motorboats from 28 to 70 ft, demanding the use of first-class materials and the latest technology, which is why all boats built at Lütje are constructed using a sandwich core.
