President, Solvay Composite Materials
In the last 30 years Composite Materials have evolved from niche to mainstream thanks to major advances in chemistry and automation. However the industry is still not extracting the full potential of the technology to maximize performance and reduce total cost of ownership. The future adoption of composites across multiple markets will be driven by innovations in high rate manufacturing, simulation and modelling, multi-functionality and environmental sustainability.
