September 3-4, 2001; Queen Mary University of London, UK. The programme for the conference has now been published and registratiuon is open. Conference topics include:

– Natural fibres and composites
– Wood fibre composites
– Bio-derived resins
– Biodegradable composites
– Recycling of composites
– Life cycle studies
– Ecodesign and applications

Ecological awareness has resulted in a renewed interest in natural materials and issues such as recyclability and environmental safety are becoming increasingly important for the introduction of new composite materials and products. Environmental legislation as well as consumer demand are all increasing the pressure on manufacturers of materials and end-products to consider the environmen-tal impact of their products at all stages of their life cycle, including recycling and ultimate disposal. Hence, a ‘cradle-to-grave’ approach emerges. These environmental issues have recently generated considerable interest in the development of composite materials based on renewable resources such as natural fibres as environmentally friendly and low-cost alternatives for glass fibres and the use of plastics based on renewable resources for the development of true biocomposites. Currently a large number of interesting applications are emerging and especially the automotive industry is looking seriously into the use of eco-composites as a way to serve the environment and at the same time save weight and cost. The objective of EcoComp is to promote the exchange of information on new developments in the area of eco-composites. Poster Papers from both academia and industry are still invited
