Call for papers: International Conference on Eco-friendly Fibers and Polymeric Materials (EFPM’24)


Date: February 19-20, 2024

Venue: Bangkok, Thailand


Greetings from KMUTNB and Techno Park!!


The path of the revaluation of bio-based fibers and polymeric materials goes through the improvement of its production sectors, the continuous deepening of scientific knowledge in this area, new marketing strategies and indelibly, the generation of products based on bio-based fibers and polymers. EFPM aims to bring researchers from both academia and industry in and around the globe to exchange new ideas, share knowledge and explore recent developments in the area of eco-friendly fibers and polymeric materials. The conference includes keynote and invited lectures by an array of eminent speakers from reputed international organizations and institutions. The conference endeavours to encourage exchange of innovative ideas and facilitate future academic collaborations.
