The proceedings from Ecocomp 2013, which looked at sustainable materials, polymers and composites, are now available from the NetComposites’ online store.
Accessible in CD format, the proceedings contain papers from all of the speakers at the conference.
The conference took place on 3 - 4 July 2013 at The Studio in Birmingham and looked at several different topic areas relating to natural fibres.
· Novel biocomposites and properties;
· Developments in bioresins;
· Fibres and fibre preforms;
· Interfaces, treatments and moisture uptake;
· Short fibre composites;
· Durability and testing;
22 papers were given over the two days from 13 different organisations.
Claire Whysall, Event and Network Manager at NetComposites and the organiser of Ecocomp, said, “The event was a great success covering innovative topics, with beneficial debate from the floor. Being able to offer the conference proceedings for sale through the online store means that a wider audience will be able to learn from today’s current research.
“I hope that we will see even more interesting applications and research in natural fibre composites over the next two years, ready for Ecocomp 2015.”
