A new European directive has considerably limited the use of disposable plastics, imposing other restrictions that may impact the design of these products. Sirris can help you!

JEC is an annual event hosted in Paris and offering professionals the opportunity to meet with the composites industry. Summary of the 2019 edition.

After four years of research in robust design methodologies for uncertainty quantification and optimisation for industrial applications the EUFORIA consortium is ready to present its results and developed methods. On 25 April Brussels is the place to be for an inspiring conference.

From now on the Eurofinish (surface treatments) and Materials (manufacturing industry) trade fairs will be taking place together. The following dates for the combined fair in Leuven are 15 and 16 May 2019. Sirris will also be taking part with its stand and a lecture.

The Sirris test laboratories are investigating the reliability of material certificates that come with metals. Do you want to know how reliable your certificate is? Send us a metal sample with material certificate and we will examine the chemical composition of your sample free of charge!

Eni, the Italian energy company, is carrying out research into the production of hydrogen from non-recyclable plastic packaging waste.

We are one step closer to germ-proof surfaces for environments such as hospitals after an unexpected discovery of a black variant of TiO2 coatings that does not require UV activation and works more effectively than existing standard TiO2 solutions.

Shorter product-to-market-times and higher expectations for sustainability, reliability and quality have ensured that product tests form an important link in the development process of products.

How do you (re)design products in composites made of fibre-reinforced plastic? This course, which takes place on 6 and 7 May 2019, focuses on making the right choice of materials, structural design, knowledge of the possible production processes and the way of assessing the manufactured product.

On 16 January the workshop on recycling composites from mixed waste streams of yachts and boats took place. During this interactive work session participants could share their experience on and expectations for recycling these vessels.
