ECOplast Workshop

ECOplast Workshop


The ECOplast workshop, organized under the scope of the ECOplast - European Research Project aims at presenting and discuss cutting edge progresses in tailor-made bio-composites – from design an   production to present and prospective applications.

Conscious of the increasing ecological awareness along with new legislation that boosted the demand for products with a high ecological image both science and industry partners are aiming to develop biopolymers based on renewable resources that fulfill the required specifications of the highly demanding automotive industry. 

The ECOplast workshop will address the recent developments of new biomass-based composites, biopolymer production, novel reinforcements, nanofillers and additives, and the adaptation of conventional processing techniques for the next generation of bioplastics.
