Environmental awareness has stimulated an increased interest in sustainable materials and issues such as recyclability and environmental responsibility are becoming ever more important.
Composite materials and products need to play their part in addressing these concerns as environmental legislation and consumer demand is increasing the pressure on manufacturers and designers to consider the impact of their products at all stages of their life cycle.
The Ecocomp 2019 Conference, configured to reflect the complete life cycle of composite products, will attract an audience of OEMs, end-users, composite material manufacturers and suppliers,designers, academics and researchers.
