This will be a transversal conference on natural fibers, focused on the latest scientific and technical advances in natural fibres, from nature to applications. The conference will bring together various universities, research and technological centres, companies and all those interested in these amazing materials called natural fibres.
The conference topics include:
- New efficient and cost effective processes for natural fibres extraction and processing;
- Innovative natural fibres;
- Functional natural fibres;
- Natural fibre modification techniques;
- Advanced fibrous structures based on natural fibres;
- Nanodimensional natural fibres (nanocellulose);
- Natural fibres based polymeric composites;
- Natural fibres based cimenticious composites;
- Applications of natural fibres in high end sectors (construction, geotechnical, automobiles, sports, etc.);
- Modelling and prediction of properties and behaviour;
- Product development based on natural fibres;
- Markets for natural fibres.
