Environmental Footprint Focus

Improving the Composites Sector Environmental Footprint

Composite materials already bring so much value to industry, combining high strength with low weight and corrosion-resistant properties. And in many cases, low environmental impact as well.

ECOCOMP 2019, held in Coventry, UK, on June 19-20, was about improving the environmental footprint of the composites industry across all stages of the life cycle – from design to raw materials to life cycle analysis and recycling.

Numerous efforts are being made throughout the industry, including:

Take recycling carbon fibres for example. This process uses 10% of the energy required to produce virgin carbon fibres, and the resulting product costs 40% less. This is a clear win for both industry and the environment.

With efforts like this being made across the composites industry, we are well on the way to reducing our environmental impact and protecting our world for generations to come.

The ECOCOMP Conference was well worth attending & we look forward to exploring how these innovations can be included in our business activities.

Industrial Waters Conference 2019 10-12 April 2019, Dunedin

The 2019 Conference Committee would like to extend a warm invitation out to organisations dealing with water and waste issues, members from all sectors of the industry including scientists, Regional and Territorial Authorities, engineers, suppliers and liquid waste operators.

The group is primarily focused on providing real time solutions to issues facing the Industry, developing national standards and working together as an industry to develop sustainable processes that protect infrastructure and the environment.

One of the themes for the 2019 conference is around the water reform and by the time the conference starts we will be in a better position to discuss what voice we want to put forward. Along with the water reform we will be discussing the pitfalls of incorrect treatment processes and the impact of tourism on the wastewater industry.

With this conference, we look to bring together like-minded people, share in the experiences we have had, discuss the issues we have faced, grow new connections and relationships and hopefully solve or work through potential solutions to current issues.

We look forward to seeing you at the conference.
