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.
The GreenLight Project is pleased to announce several of its project partners will be presenting at the Ecocomp 2019 Conference on 19-20 June 2019 at DoubleTree by Hilton, Coventry in the UK.
Per Tomani of RISE will be speaking on ‘Lignin Opportunities’, Lars Bostan of FIBRE & Omid Hosseinei of RISE will be speaking on ‘Lignin based carbon fibres: Challenges in process scale up’ and Dr Vio Lambertini of FIAT (CRF) will be speaking on ‘Future Strategies for Sustainable Polymers’.
Conference delegates will also have a chance to network with the project partners on the dedicated exhibition stand at the event.

CGTech has unveiled a bespoke software package which can replicate the cutting conditions that would be achieved in real-world applications.
Michelman will introduce visitors to the JEC Forum Chicago Conference & Business Meetings to its portfolio of fibre sizing solutions that help industry exploit the benefits of composites: design freedom, consolidation of parts, and integration of functionality while meeting lightweighting initiatives.
Research to develop a revolutionary high-performance composite metal hybrid stabiliser bar for trucks and trains has entered a new phase. The findings from the project to date show that the technology has the potential to spin out into other sectors such as aerospace and could see the UK take a global lead with this disruptive technology.
