Scientists from ISOBIO attended the second International Conference on Bio-Based Building Materials (ICBBM) in Clermont Ferrand in June of 2017. Dr Mike Lawrence from the University of Bath delivered a plenary talk on Innovations in the use of bio-based aggregates in construction, charting the development of research leading to the cutting-edge research being conducted in ISOBIO.
Technical research conducted as part of the ISOBIO Project inspired the presentation of 5 papers at the conference. This included 2 papers prom the University of Bath, 2 papers from the University of Rennes 2, and one paper from CAVAC.
266 delegates from 40 countries attended the conference to listen to 150 presentations. As well as sharing scientific knowledge through presentations, there were opportunities for networking with scientists in different fields, but all with the shared goal of minimising the environmental impact of construction through the use of bio-based materials.
