Recycling of composite materials: a cross-border approach to a circular economy

The project aimed to respond to the problem of the recycling of composite materials by means of a multilevel approach: materials, thermochemical (pyrolysis, solvolysis) and energy recycling as a last resort. Taking into account the large diversity of these materials (thermosetting or thermoplastic resins, natural, glass or carbon fibres), the cross-border approach will enable a pooling of the skills of the associate centres and the developing of contacts between manufacturers throughout the whole of the geographical area concerned.
