Advancements in Fiber-Polymer Composites Conference announced for May in Milwaukee

Thursday, January 17, 2013

The Advancements in Fiber-Polymer Composites: Wood Fiber, Natural Fibers, and Nanocellulose Conference to be held on May 6-7, 2013 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.

Wood and other natural fibers have been used in composites for many years. Recently, there has been a resurgence of interest with the largest examples including the development of the wood-plastic composites industry and nanocellulose composites. A new generation of composites is emerging as material behavior is better understood, processing and performance are improved, and new opportunities are identified.

This conference seeks to bring together industry, government, and academia to discuss the latest developments in fiber-polymer composites and represents an evolution of the International Wood and Biofiber Plastic Composites Conference series initiated by FPL and the University of Toronto, and hosted biennially by FPL and FPS.
