The European project FLOWER (co-funded by the Interreg France (Channel) England program) commenced in February 2018, with the aim to develop optimised, low-cost flax fiber reinforcements for a more circular composites industry with well-considered end-of-life scenarios for a diverse range of low-, mid- and high-performance applications such as point-of-sale advertising displays, automotive interior components, and elements of hydrofoil sailboats.
The fourth and final FLOWER conference will take place on 15-16 December 2021 at the University of Cambridge.
The central focus of this conference will be ‘Biobased Composites for Mobility and Transportation: Moving towards Sustainability’.
The conference will take place over three half-day sessions and host around 20-25 talks.
The following key themes will be explored during the sessions:
- Understanding structure-property-function relations in plant fibre composites: Functions and Functionality; Ageing; Structural property
- Specificities of designing biocomposites for transportation applications:
- End-of-life scenarios of biocomposites: Recycling, Life Cycle Analysis, Biodegradation
- Industrial development of biocomposite products: Technology transfer
