JEC Group presents the JEC TV Podcast

10 Apr 2020
JEC Group has launched its own podcast series in March. Each month JEC TV Podcast brings the latest news in the world of composites and their applications. The ten-minute video broadcast is hosted by Frédéric Reux, the editor in chief of the JEC Composites Magazine. Segments include Sports and composites, the History of composites, Startup news, and interviews of professors and top executives of composites firms.

The first episode features composites solutions in the building industry from pre-history to future, with the exclusive interview of Laurent Destouches of Solutions Composites, about the project of reconstructing the spire of Notre Dame in composites. The episode also includes an interview of French pole vaulter Renaud Lavillenie. The startup Woodoo gives an insight into what is “Augmented wood” used in the automotive and building industry. Finally, Ignaas Verpoest, Professor Emeritus at the University of Leuven and Christophe Binetruy, Professor and Composites Specialist at Ecole Centrale de Nantes, will both put the spotlight on the use of composites in the building industry.

The second episode highlights composites solutions in the mobility sector with the exclusive interview of Dominique Dubois from Carboman Group / Multiplast, presenting the first 100% electric commercial aircraft. Also, in this episode, tennis champion Stéphane Houdet, explains how carbon fiber improved his performance and the startup Vartega, details how its carbon-fiber-reinforced plastic recycling process works. Ignaas Verpoest, Professor Emeritus at the University of Leuven, gives a short lesson of the history of carbon fiber, and Patricia Krawczak, Professor at IMT Lille Douai, shows how recycling is made easier with thermoplastic composites.

“The goal of the JEC TV Podcasts is to raise awareness of composites to a broader audience that goes beyond the usual experts and engineers that work with them every day. Composites are part of our everyday life and essential in many industries. Their share will grow even more future, especially in the mobility sector, where the need for lighter and more resistants materials is growing. We hope this new program will help develop the penetration of composites in many industries”, says Frederic Reux, Editor in chief JEC Group.


Save the date in May for the third episode, about additive manufacturing.
