The SeaBioComp Interreg Project invites British Marine members to attend this hybrid conference on ‘The Future of Biobased Polymer and Natural Fibre Composites for the Marine Environment’, which will take place online and in person at the CETI facilities near Lille in France, Wednesday 27 April 2022, 11.00-17.00 CET.

Speakers will include several SeaBioComp partners talking about the bio-based composites that have been produced during the project, including self-reinforced PLA filaments and fabrics, their mechanical properties and effects in seawater. In addition, there will be presentations on compression moulding of biosourced composites and thermoplastic composite manufacture by monomer infusion (MIFT).

SeaBioComp is a collaborative project with the aim to develop and produce novel bio-based thermoplastic composite materials and the analytical protocols to evaluate long-term durability and reduced ecological impact on the marine environment.
