||Efforts to achieve more environmentally friendly materials and manufacturing process is an increasingly important topic. From the use of natural recyclable raw materials to the improvement of component life cycle enhancement to reduce waste are often targeted in all engineering sectors. This symposium focuses on innovations in the field of composite materials with a specific focus on Eco-Friendly and environmentally sustainable systems. Papers looking at development of materials for structural applications, reduction in energy consumption, and increase component life. All submissions should focus on how the work being done will have environmental impacts.
Specific Topics of interest include but are not limited to recycled material feed-stock, applications for reduced carbon footprint and novel materials to repurpose waste from other areas such as coal as a feed-stock.
