Key Industry Figures Provide Insights on Composites Recycling and Sustainability

06 August 2007

NetComposites, the organisers of Composites Innovation 2007, have announced the programme for this unique new event which this year has the theme of Sustainability & Environmental Performance.

The event will take place on 4-5th October 2007 in Barcelona, with the first day focussed on Naturally Derived Composites and the second day on Recycling and Processing Technologies. Keynote presentations by major industry figures from Europe and the US will set the scene for each session:
▪ Brett Suddell, BioComposites Centre, UK – Natural Composites: the solution?
▪ Bill Carberry, Boeing Company, USA – Recycling carbon fibre: maximising fibre value for sustainability and profitability

As well as speakers from companies and institutions around the globe, the Naturally Derived Materials session will feature a workshop hosted by partners from the European BioComp project. This will be an open discussion assisted by presentations on composite products that are manufactured from bio-derived resins and reinforced by natural fibres, underpinning the theme of the conference and generating debates on this current novel topic.

Composites Innovation has been organised to follow the success of NetComposites previous conference, Composites Europe 2005: Composites Innovation and Routes to Market, which highlighted the need for further technology transfer on the subject of innovation in composites.

Registrations are now being taken for the event and forms can be found on the conference website. Potential delegates are encouraged to take advantage of the early bird reduced rates by booking before 31st August 2007.

An exhibition will run alongside the two-day event and there are also opportunities for sponsorship of the conference. For more information please visit the conference website or contact NetComposites at the address below.
