5th International Conference on Bio-Based Building Materials - ICBBM 2023

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 are 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 material comparing to the modern and conventional construction material.

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

The purpose of this international conference ICBBM 2023 is to present the latest available scientific and technical information in the field of bio-based building materials, natural fibres, earthen ramped, innovative hybrid composites natural fibres, sustainable binders for sustainability and energy efficiency of buildings, life cycle analysis of 3BM.
