The non-metallic composite market will grow exponentially within the next decade to support sustainable energy production in the Middle East and beyond. This revolution requires drastic changes in the way we operate composite structures.
We will present ENERCOMP, a new technology consortium on Composite Asset Performance in Energy Applications. It aims to increase confidence in non-metallic composite solutions by making new technologies available for integrity management.
This overview aims to open paths for collaborations with international players in the composite and energy sectors.
