The 2nd International Conference on Ecological Valorisation of Granular and Fibrous Materials took place from June 21st – 23rd in Clermont-Ferrand, France. Circular Ocean’s Greenlandic partner ARTEK (Arctic Technology Centre – Technical University of Denmark) made a presentation on their work around the “Reuse of polyethylene fibres from fishing nets as fibre reinforcement in gypsum-based materials” on the afternoon of Wednesday 21st June – you can download the presentation here
In front of challenges of the sustainable development, building materials constitute one of the main targets to answer the environmental issues. The development of new materials with low environmental impact, new techniques of design, implementation, control or diagnosis is a necessity.
ICBBM ECOGRAFI is an international conference established to review and allow the distribution of the current knowledge around building materials and around the Civil engineering of granular and\or fibrous materials (soils, mineral or vegetable aggregates, demolition material, industrial products for construction, … ). The conference will allow the exchanges and discussions between researchers, engineers and industrialists on the elaboration, the design, the characterization, the performances and the experience feedback about the use of these materials in the optics of the sustainable development.
