Papers Invited for Ecocomp 2017

Papers are requested for the return of Ecocomp, which will take place on 9-10 May 2017, at the Manufacturing Technology Centre, Coventry, UK.

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 is 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 biocomposites.

With this in mind, Ecocomp 2017 will focus on composite materials derived from sustainable sources. With a deadline of 18 November 2016, abstracts are requested on the following topics:

  • Natural fibre reinforcement
  • Recycled fibre reinforcements
  • Wood fibre composites
  • Bio-derived resins
  • Biodegradable composites
  • Eco-design
  • Durability and testing
  • Life cycle studies
  • Recycling of composites
  • Case study applications

Sue Keighley, Events and Communications Specialist at NetComposites, comments, “We’re delighted to be announcing the Call for Papers for Ecocomp 2017. In the past, the conference has proved to be hugely successful and a fantastic forum for the development of eco-friendly composites. There is huge demand for more sustainable materials across industries and this is the perfect place for researchers, suppliers, OEMs and end-users to discuss the requirements and the routes to market.”
