Natural cork materials have many interesting applications. The present book places emphasis on such topics as cork quality, crashworthiness of agglomerated cork, architectural applications, cork stoppers, production of hollow cork pieces, 3D print technology filaments based on cork waste, effects of extremely low and high temperatures, and the adaptation of cork oak forests to climate change.

Cork Oak, Agglomerated Cork, Architectural Applications of Cork, Natural Cork Stoppers, Hollow Pieces of Cork, Rotational Moulding of Cork, 3D Print Technology based on Cork Waste, 3D Print Technology based on Natural Biological Sources, Crashworthiness of Agglomerated Cork, Low and High Temperature Effects on Cork

About the Editors

Patricia Jové i Martín

Graduated in Biology and Science and Technology of Food from Universitat de Barcelona and Universitat de Girona. Jové is a Doctor in Experimental Sciences and Sustainability, and a specialist in cork focused on the study of the properties and the new applications of cork as a material. Her PhD was focused on the characterisation and evaluation of the capacity of cork and by products on cork industry as biosorbents of pollutants. Dr. Jové has been involved in more than 5 European projects and 20 national projects and is the author or co-author of 15 publications, always with cork as leit motiv. Director of R&D&I Department at Institut Català del Suro since 2014, she is in charge of the management and implementation of ICSuro projects. These projects are focused on two fields: Cork-Wine interaction and new applications of cork in design and architecture. The R&D&I department also advise and helps entrepreneurs to develop new cork products.

Maria Verdum Virgos

Graduated in Biology from the University of Girona and Master in Advanced Microbiology from the University of Barcelona. Ms. Verdum has been working in Catalan Cork Institute (ICSuro) since 2014. I worked as a Laboratory Technician in Cork center Laboratory. In 2016 I had been changed from Quality department (Cork Center Laboratory) to R&D department. Since then, I am a researcher in since 2016. I have been part of 12 Regional, State and European projects. According of aim of ICSuro, all projects are focus on promoting, developing and raising awareness of cork usage. I am co-author of 2 research papers, and 2 more which are in writing. I am author of 3 communications in international scientific conferences and I am co-author of 3 posters. I have been coordination assistant in the conferences of Cork in Science and its Aplications. I had also been involved as a researcher in research group: Genomics and Proteomics of Bacterial Virulence Factors in the Department of Microbiology of the University of Barcelona in 2014 and the Centre de Recerca en Sanitat Animal-Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona (CReSA-UAB) in 2013.
