Workshop: Bio-based Polymers and Composites for Technical Applications

Due to environmental and economic aspects, currently the use of renewable resources for technical applications shows a dynamic growth. Industry and research groups from all over the world have realized that the use of renewable resources has a huge potential.

The workshop of the »Application Center for Wood Fiber Research HOFZET®« of the Fraunhofer WKI, a close cooperation partner of the IfBB, takes place in London, Ontario and covers topics related to biocomposites for technical applications.

Due to environmental and economic aspects, currently the use of renewable resources for technical applications shows a dynamic growth. Industry and research groups from all over the world have realized that the use of renewable resources has a huge potential.

International collaboration is a key point for the consistent and sustainable realization of this potential.

In order to give an impulse to this international collaboration, we are going to host a collaborative workshop of the »Application Center for Wood Fiber Research HOFZET®« which is going to be conducted at the Fraunhofer-Project Centre FPC, located at the Western University in Ontario, Canada, and will take place from October 25th to 26th.

The workshop offers a platform for knowledge and competence exchange, but mainly it is going to be used for the identification of the potential collaboration fields.

25.-26.10.2018 in London (CAN)

Why should you join the workshop in London?

- Competence exchange between scientists and industry
- Identification of new ideas and topics for collaborative projects
- Efficient use of renewable resources for industrial applications:
Optimization of reinforcement fibers and fabrics
Manufacture of biocomposites
State-of-the-art manufacturing technologies
Properties of the biobased products
Analytics
Recycling / End of Life scenarios
Life Cycle Analysis

Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.

Brackets

You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).

Phrases

Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
