One session of the convention will likely be devoted to the Biocomposite of the 12 months 2017 award.

‘With the most recent advances in injection molding and 3D printing, biocomposites are of excessive curiosity for a mess of purposes and supply quite a lot of new alternatives,’ the nova-Institute mentioned. ‘For instance, furnishings and shopper items have began to supply a number of choices for product differentiation. Increasingly more firms particularly use wooden and pure fiber plastic granulates in shopper items corresponding to devices, digital casings, furnishings, tables, toys, combs or trays in addition to 3D printed items.’
