In conjunction with the National Composites Centre (NCC), the EPSRC Future Composites Manufacturing Research Hub are pleased to invite you to attend a Sustainability workshop to be held at the NCC, Bristol & Bath Science Park, on Wednesday 30 March 2022.
A combination of presentations and interactive sessions will give delegates the opportunity to discuss Sustainability challenges and developments within the Composites Manufacturing sector. Sustainability is of key importance to the future of the composites industry. The high-specific properties and durability of composite materials offer well-known advantages in the use-phase via lightweighting, increase of life and reduction in maintenance. However, the high embodied energy of the constituent materials and lack of an established recycling route must be considered in any Life Cycle Analysis. The workshop aims to highlight the sustainability activities within the NCC, strengthen links with the Hub and identify ongoing and future research challenges.
This is a free to attend event and lunch and refreshments will be provided. Click here to see the agenda.
If you would like to attend the workshop, please register your attendance by completing and submitting this form by Monday 21 March 2022. Please note places are limited.
