Nine papers from an international cork conference held in Aveiro, Portugal during September 2017 discuss research into cork as a material and its applications. Among the topics are revaluation of Catalan low-quality cork as feedstock for additive three-dimensional printing technology, designing with cork: bringing the industry into the design studio classroom, a cost-effective methodology to perform customized moulding of cork agglomerates, using cork waste in domestic heating equipment, and using cork waste as a sorbent for pesticides and heavy metals generated during the wine manufacturing process. Annotation ©2017 Ringgold Inc.
