Signs for growth of biocomposites can be found in various markets

With the latest advances in injection moulding and 3D printing, biocomposites are of high interest for a multitude of applications and provide a number of new opportunities. For example, furniture and consumer goods have started to offer several options for product differentiation. More and more companies specifically use wood and natural fibre plastic granulates in consumer goods such as instruments, electronic casings, furniture, tables, toys, combs or trays as well as 3D printed goods – the unique look and haptics convey high quality and value and are well received by customers.

The Biocomposites Conference Cologne (BCC) will be the largest industry meeting on biocomposites worldwide, 6 and 7 December 2017 in Cologne, Germany

The conference programme represents the wide spectrum of innovative applications and material choices available for Natural Fibre Composites (NFC) and Wood-Plastic Composite (WPC): Biocomposites in 3D printing, for structural applications, in automotive applications, WPC in construction, granulates for injection moulding, bio-based thermoset resins and new polymers.
