Challenge 5

Challenge purpose: To find an innovative process to recycle composite materials

Main section of application:

  • Automotive

Main cross-cutting topics:

  • Material supply & development

  • Recycling

Scope of the challenge

  • Recycling of composites is a high-cost process that usually needs a high amount of energy.

  • There are not so many processes that could use recycled fibres. Forth is reason recycled fibers have no big value.

Challenge objectives

  • Find a sustainable process to recycle composites (% of fibre recycled >70%)

  • Cost of recycled fibres < cost of new fibres
