GENERAL INFORMATION       The course, organised in the scope of the EcoPlast project, aims at presenting cutting edge developments in new biomass-based composites; from design, to production and application. The course will address the most innovative biopolymer treatments, including fibre reinforcement and the addition of novel fillers and nanofillers. A new generation of bio-based composites and their most advanced applications will be presented.
