Advanced carbon-fibre composite recycling processes
The storage or incineration of composite waste does not represent sustainable solutions for economic, legislative and environmental reasons. The development of recycling of scrap and production waste as well as composite materials at the end of their life cycle is therefore a major challenge given the increasing use of composites in industry.
The objective of this project is to study pyrolysis and solvolysis processes to find innovative tailored solutions that will resolve the scientific and technological bottleneck in order to further the development of composite material recycling.
- 50% minimum for recycled carbon fibres
- Elimination of 95% of the resin on the fibre
- 95% of the mechanical properties of a new carbon fibre
- Composite processes
