Sustainable Materials, Polymers & Composites 4th International Conference

6th & 7th July 2011, The Studio, Birmingham

Composite materials derived from natural, renewable sources have received significant interest in recent years, in particular due to the increased awareness of environmental issues and the drive towards more sustainable technologies.  The use of renewable materials helps the depletion of the earth’s resources and the instability in the price of oil and energy has encouraged industry to look for more stable alternatives.

Continuing the success of previous Ecocomp Conferences, the 2011 event will explore the future direction of international research and application of sustainable materials, polymers and composites within the academic, industrial and wider social environments. Areas to be addressed include (but are not limited to):

  • Natural fibres and composites
  • Wood Plastic Composites
  • Bio-derived resins and adhesives
  • Biodegradable composites
  • Eco-design
  • Sustainability
  • End of life options including recycling
  • Industrial Applications
  • Social Policy & Consumer Acceptance
  • Life Cycle Analysis
  • Green nano-composites
  • Other Related Topics
