Lightweight, Durable and Sustainable Composites
Press Club - Brussels | 25 OCT - 00 0000
Composites are lightweight, strong and durable materials which can be manufactured in complex shapes at a cost-effective way: for these reasons, they found ever growing applications in many engineering fields. Composites are also fully compatible with our environment and help making a more efficient use of natural resources. The conversion processes, for example, are equivalent or even cleaner than those used for other traditional structural materials, and the greatest advantage of composites in terms of environmental impact is achieved during the use phase, in which lightness and durability are major advantages. The seminar will focus on all these aspects, in order to provide the audience with a deeper insight about sustainability of high-performance composite materials.
