EuCIA Seminar Highlights Sustainability as Key Driver for Composites

November 13 2017

Sustainability as a key driver for the use of composites, and the need for life cycle assessment (LCA) methods that provide reliable, reproducible results, were highlighted at the Lightweight, Durable and Sustainable Composites seminar organized by the European Composites Industry Association (EuCIA).

Seminar attendees also listened to presentations on topics including:
• The environmental impact of composites over the complete life cycle of a part, and designing to minimize this
• Comparison of the environmental impact of different composites recycling technologies
• Life cycle analysis for carbon composite structures in automotive, rail and aviation transportation.

An overview of EuCIA's Eco Calculator was also provided. This online tool was developed by EuCIA for use in calculating the environmental impact of the production of composite products (from 'cradle to gate'). The Eco Calculator and the organization of regular seminars are just two of EuCIA's program of activities in the area of sustainability.

A video of the Lightweight, Durable and Sustainable Composites seminar is available online.
