Prodrive Composites, which makes parts for the automotive and aerospace industries, will present at sustainable composites conference Ecocomp 2019, taking place from 19-20 June 2019 in Coventry, UK.

The paper, Using P2T and Natural Fibres as a Viable Solution for Performance Parts’ will be presented by project engineer, Rowan Carstensen.

‘Participants will be able to understand the steps Prodrive have taken to meet the market challenges of end-of-life, recycling and sustainable manufacture, as well as materials which can be used,’ Carstensen told conference organizers NetComposites. ‘We are generally interested to understand where the rest of the industry sits on this challenge and how they have approached it. We are curious to see how OEMs are approaching the challenge as well as new material developments and research and how they could be potentially integrated into mass production processes.’

The conference also includes presentations from Fiat (CRF), Prodrive Composites, European Composite Recycling Technology, Jiva Materials, Fraunhofer, ELG Carbon Fibre, UPM, The Biofore Company, Bath University, Bristol University, Bangor University and support from INICOP and Ecobulk, RISE and Greenlight projects.
