Progess in Wood (& Bio) Fibre Plastic Composites 2006 International Conference
|Event Date/Time: May 01, 2006||End Date/Time: May 02, 2006|
|Early Registration Date: Apr 07, 2006|
examine recent progress in the science, technology, economics and applications of wood and other biofibre-plastic composites.
The high conversion efficiency of raw materials to finished products,diverse product and market opportunities, and the flexible yet
automated processing technology continue to attract new investment into this young industry. It is an added bonus to both manufacturers and consumers that these composites are green and eco-friendly since the fibres used in their manufacture are derived from renewable resources, the energy requirement for processing is modest, and the products are easily recycled at the end of their service life.
The conference will bring together business leaders, scientists,marketing and technical experts, and students from around the
world. The program opens with a Plenary Session, focusing on economics and markets, issues of long-term product performance,
novel approaches to develop improved composites, and the challenges that rising energy and feedstock prices pose for the industry. The Plenary Session will be followed by a slate of excellent technical papers that will address a broad range of topics, including
recent developments in fibre preparation, novel additives, new processing technologies, experience with applications and performance
from building products to automotive components. The participation of suppliers of materials, additives, processing technology
and consulting services in the Suppliers' Showcase, plus the involvement of students in the Technical Forum presentations will
enhance the experience and opportunities for networking at this conference. Do join us, register now!
