Cork and cork agglomerates are natural cellular materials that are receiving much interest in a number of technological applications, e.g. as Feedstock for the Additive 3D Printing Technology; Solar, Wind and Bioenergy applications; Sorbent for Pesticides and Heavy Metals; and Water Treatment. Experimental, analytical and computational research is reported, as well as new applications in fields ranging from design and architecture to mechanical, chemical, civil and electronics engineering.

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.

About the Editors
Ricardo Alves de Sousa (São Paulo, 7th October, 1977) is currently Assistant Professor at the Department of Mechanical Engineering and member of the Center of Mechanical Technology (TEMA) research unit. In 2006, he obtained his PhD degree in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Aveiro, Portugal.
He has more than 70 scientific contributions either in papers, book chapters and books, and he is author of 3 patents. In 2011, he received the international scientific ESAFORM (European Association of Material Forming) career prize. In 2013 he received the Innovation Prize from APCOR (Portuguese Association for Cork), and in March of 2015 he became researcher of the month at the University of Aveiro.
Ofélia Anjos is a professor at the Agrarian School of Polytechnic Institute of Castelo Branco. She has obtained her BSc in Forest products at the University of Lisbon and her MSc degree in Science and Technology on paper and other forest products at the University of Beira Interior and University of Aveiro. She later obtained her PhD degree in Materials Science from the University of Lisbon (Instituto Superior Técnico), Portugal.
Ofélia Anjos is author of several papers in international peer reviewed journals, related to forest products, namely cork and more recent in food products (as example spirits and hive products) and infrared spectroscopic techniques.
