Save the Date for the First ACMA Green Composites Workshop

April 8, 2011 (Arlington, Va.) Companies in the steel and concrete industries have already developed life cycle assessment (LCA) and life cycle inventory (LCI) data collections to respond to the growing demand in all market sectors to produce proof that their companies are “green.” Where does this leave the composites industry? The American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA) the leader in green composites issues will address critical issues like this at the first Green Composites Workshop, June 21-22, 2011, in Rosemont, Ill.

Market share and contracts will be lost if members of the composites industry aren’t aware of the trends in competing markets and why sustainability and being green are important to keeping the competitive edge. This workshop will help explain why conducting an LCA is essential to competing in the current market and will provide critical background knowledge to help distinguish between LCI and LCA and understand why each is important to calculate the environmental impact of a product.

Need-to-know questions will be answered during the workshop, including:

  • Which consumers are interested in green composites?
  • What are the strongest green trends in each market segment?
  • Why are LCI and LCA so important to the composites industry?

The Green Composites Workshop will feature case histories from leaders in green composites who will share their first-hand experience, panel discussions and even tips on marketing a “green” message to customers. Ample time will also be provided for networking with other leaders who are already working in this burgeoning market, as well as those who want to position themselves for the future.

Stay ahead of the curve and attend the Green Composites Workshop. For more information about the Green Composites Workshop or to register and make hotel reservations, visit
