Conference Aims and Scope :

Sustainable development, driven by growing environmental awareness, is increasingly becoming a priority of governments and companies. Academic research and industrial development is exploring new ways to create greener and environmentally friendlier materials for a variety of applications in a number of sectors, including aeronautics, automotive, and construction industry.
The “6th International Conference on Innovative Natural Fibre Composites for Industrial Applications”,planned for October 2017, following the success of the previous conferences held in Rome every two years from 2007,
is a good opportunity to investigate topics such as compatibility, bio-resins, toughness, impact, nanomaterials, fatigue, etc.
The conference aims at making a concrete contribution to our society from the scientific community working on novel applications of natural fibres and on the development of new “green composites” and renewable nanomaterials. Most recent research trends are aimed at exploiting the principal advantages of natural fibre reinforcements, such as lightweight, worldwide availability, ease of recycling, sustainability, renewability, thermal and acoustic insulation, lower manufacturing energy and carbon dioxide neutrality, advantage which are now more easily quantified through the use of Life Cycle Analysis methodology.


This Conference will provide a forum for discussions involving composite users, leading suppliers, engineers, producers, environmentalists, designers, researchers and technicians from industry and universities to share their experience, present their latest results, discuss the potential of the use of natural fibres, analyze state of the art and future applications.
