The EFPG (École Française de Papeterie et des Industries Graphiques) organizes the first Workshop of the SustainPack Sub-Project 5, in the frame of the fifth session of the EFPG Days which will be held on May 10, 2006 at EFPG in Grenoble.
As well as in the previous sessions, this event will present the state of the art and the lastest EFPG research results on these specific topics.
(March 16th, 2006)
State of the art and most relevant results obtained in SustainPack SP5 Sub-Project
The main results obtained so far in the field of 3D composites based on cellulosic fibers in the EU funded SustainPack project will be presented. During this workshop, you will be informed about the state of the art and the last research results obtained in the areas of thermoplastic material based on cellulosic fibers and renewable polymeric matrices, and of cushioning material based on fibers or microfibrillated cellulose and matrices. The ultimate goal is to replace the petroleum based counterparts.
The researchers of the different partners of SP5 will be giving the lectures, and will be answering your questions. The content of the lectures will be specially organized to fit an audience of industry and research and development people interested composites made from cellulosic fibers and renewable matrices, as well as suppliers willing to know about new opportunities for their products or equipments. Time will be left for discussions and exchanges and special care will be taken to make this event most fruitful and enjoyable.
The attached programme gives the list of the topics which will be actually covered.
