Title of Keynote: Polymeric-biocomposite systems with plant fibres
About Keynote: At a present many countries emphasize a social-economic expectation in relation to searching for new materials which will have similar mechanical properties as conventionally used systems. The utilization of renewable natural resources cellulose fibres in an area of composite systems is a topical material trend. Gaining fibres from renewable resources saves fossil raw materials and it is desirable from environmental process point of view. The aim of performed lecture is to describe mechanical properties of plant fibres and to define composite systems made by the vacuum infusion, describe mutal phase interaction by electron microscopy and to evaluate the effect of the surface treatments on the resulting properties.
