Welcome to Ecocomposites

The increasing replacement of metals and wood with composites is intrinsically environmentally responsible.
Composites allow structures to shed weight, and as a consequence have a big role to play in reducing both the use of petrochemicals and CO2 emissions
cross a wide range of end-use industries.

However, many other developments are taking place in the composites industry. They involve, for example, the development of natural and bio-based fibres and resins, along with cleaner and more efficient processes.
You?ll find all the news of this drive towards a greener tomorrow right here.
