Event: Rapid Manufacturing - Application, Technology and Market Implementation Strategies
Location: Web Seminar 10.30am on the 13th November 2007
Lasting approximately 1-hour, Dr Phil Reeves, Managing Director Econolyst Ltd, will discuss the emergence of Rapid Manufacturing or RM as a mainstream production solution.
Dr Reeves will start by outlining the background to RM and the application of Additive Layer Manufacturing (ALM) Technologies for production part manufacture. After placing RM into context with other ALM applications, the seminar will then discuss the value that RM could add to a business before highlighting some of the barriers to technology adoption. Phil will look at both the business drivers and customer benefits that RM can enable.
Focusing initially on market acceptance, Phil will look at a number of application based case studies before detailing a structured methodology for assessing the technological barriers to RM adoption.
Finally, the seminar will discuss global and future trends and the market application of RM as a solution to sustainable wealth creation.

Event: Increasing the uptake of FRP Composites in Construction, the Opportunities and Barriers
Location: 5th December 2007, 11 Upper Belgrave Street, London, UK
The construction industry is under constant pressure to produce durable structures that are lighter, stronger and quicker to build. Developments in FRP (fibre reinforced polymer) composites have generated exciting results in bridges, buildings and other structures. But the potential for extensive implementation remains largely untapped.
Applications for FRP are rapidly evolving. Reduced mass, corrosion resistance and superior weight-strength ratios offer significant benefits in the built environment. From an initial range of niche uses to industry-wide delivery, the potential for implementation is limited only by creative design and imagination.
Major asset-owners are fostering innovation and steadily increasing FRP use in both reinforcement and new-build projects. With high-profile clients driving uptake, the volume of work incorporating FRP components is set to experience unprecedented growth.
Event: Materials UK Energy Materials - Strategic Research Agenda Launch
Location: 4th December 2007, Tate Britain, London, UK
There will be a launch of the Energy Materials Strategic Research Agenda in the Clore Auditorium, The SRA will be formally launched by Malcolm Wicks, Minister of State for Energy.
The capture, transportation and storage of carbon dioxide emissions which result as a by-product of energy generation is currently one of the most important technological challenges to the UK. Successful capture and storage of CO2 would enable energy generation which is environmentally sustainable, socially acceptable, affordable and secure. This afternoon conference aims to take a more detailed look at the transportation and storage issues that dominate the industry. These include pipeline engineering, potential storage sites and networks in the North Sea, injection strategies and the monitoring of CO2 once injected, the impact of storage on the marine environment, market implications, and the government's carbon abatement technology programme.
