We aim to be this century’s leader in sustainable materials

Biomaterials are processed or engineered products obtained partially or fully from renewable biobased resources, including natural fibre composites, bioplastics, biorubbers, biofoams, bioadhersives, biobased paints and coatings. In the race for carbon neutrality, material construction is competing very hard, while biomass naturally sequesters carbon and is already at the top of the ranking. In consequence, we have to continue to demonstrate and show the superiority of ancestral materials compared to modern and conventional construction materials. 

Following up the great success of ICBBM 2021 (Barcelona, Spain), ICBBM 2019 (Belfast, UK), 2017 and ICBBM2015/ ICBBM2017 at Clermont Ferrand, France, the International Conference on Bio-Based Building Materials was one of the largest conferences worldwide in the area on bio-based building materials (3BM) used in construction and provided thus also an excellent platform for networking with more than 260 participants from all over the world and an exhibition. 

The purpose of the ICBBM 2023 international conference is to present the latest scientific knowledge- and the recent technical developments in the field of bio-based building materials as well as their applications in sustainable building constructions. The conference will address the broad aspects of bio-based building materials, such as natural fibres- and aggregates, ramped earth, innovative hybrid composites based on bio-based ingredients, novel sustainable binders, energy efficiency aspects- and life cycle analysis of these materials, applications and case studies, etc.
