Symposium to Feature Globally Recognized Industry Experts in Basalt Fiber and Construction Engineering

POMPANO BEACH, FL / ACCESSWIRE / June 27, 2022 / Basanite Inc. (OTCQB:BASA) ('Basanite' or 'the Company'), a manufacturer of environmentally friendly, high-performance composite construction materials made from basalt fiber and basalt fiber-reinforced polymer (BFRP), will host an in-person technical symposium highlighting the benefits of BFRP construction products such as those produced by Basanite. The symposium will be held on June 28, 2022, in Palm City, Florida.

Basanite has convened this symposium as it believes that current market dynamics (including a desire to utilize more environmentally friendly construction materials and the growing price equivalence between BRPF materials and traditional steel materials) make Basanite's BFRP products highly desirable.

The symposium will feature a panel consisting of globally recognized industry experts in the fields of materials sciences, construction, engineering, and basalt fiber manufacturing. The panel will present on a variety of topics ranging from the replacement of steel with basalt fiber to the current regulatory and pricing elements of the construction materials sector. A broad range of industry participants, including government agencies, design and build firms, and construction companies are expected to be in attendance.

The keynote speaker of the Symposium is Dr. Brahim Benmokrane of Canada's Sherbrooke University, an internationally renowned technical expert, and a world leader in the field of structural concrete internally reinforced with fiber-reinforced polymers (FRPs). Dr. Benmokrane's pioneering research has significantly influenced the development of new concrete structures reinforced with FRP rebars, led to new building codes and design specifications and supported and promoted the practical use of FRP products for various structures and elements in North America and beyond.

Also speaking at the symposium will be the following:

  • Alvaro Ruiz Emparanza, Ph.D., Director of Engineering and Business Development for Mafic USA, a Florida-based manufacturer of continuous and chopped basalt fiber and long fiber thermoplastic resins;
  • Fred Tingberg Jr., Basanite's Chief Technology Officer, who leads Basanite's product development, sales, and technical certification programs, as well as ensures the Basanite's adherence to government building codes and construction regulations;
  • Jesus Escalona, Basanite's Engineering Department Manager, an experienced civil and structural engineer; and
  • Vesna Stanic, Ph.D., Basanite's Director of Quality Assurance, materials engineer and chemist, with multi-disciplinary expertise in materials development and commercialization.

The event will be streamed live at the following location: and will be available for replay on Basanite's website for 30 days at
