JEC Group and EuCIA Partner to Promote Composites Industry

JEC Group and EuCIA have signed a partnership agreement to work together in Europe to promote composite solutions throughout application industries and help national organizations share their best practices and identify opportunities of development. “I am very proud to announce this partnership and to support EuCIA initiatives as I strongly believe that joining common efforts and strategies will benefit to the overall composite industry in Europe but also worldwide,” said Eric Pierrejean, JEC Group CEO.

Joint efforts will begin during JEC World 2019, scheduled for March 13 in Paris where EuCIA will present the Eco Impact Calculator for Composites—a Life Cycle Analysis to allow the calculation of the environmental footprint related to a product, a process, or a service in terms of key impact parameters. According to EuCIA, this web-based tool can be used by manufacturers, academia, and authorities without the specialization that is required for full Life Cycle Assessments.

The research published by EuCIA about the prospect for New Guidance in the Design of FRP Structures will also be presented by Luigi Ascione, professor, University of Salerno during the JEC World Construction Composites Circle on March 14.
