JEC Group and EuCIA (the Association of the European Composites Industry) have join forced in Europe to promote composites and help national organisations to share their best practices and identify opportunities of development.

The first common action will take place during JEC World 2019 on Wednesday 13 March where EuCIA will present the Eco Impact Calculator for Composites, a life cycle analysis which calculates the environmental footprint related to a product, a process or a service in terms of key impact parameters.

Research published by EuCIA about new guidance in the sesign of FRP structures will also be presented by Luigi Ascione, professor at the University of Salerno.

‘I am very proud to announce this partnership and to support EuCIA initiatives as I strongly believe that joining common efforts and strategies will benefit to the overall composite industry in Europe but also worldwide,’ said Eric Pierrejean, JEC Group CEO.
