Airbus working group setting out a composites recycling roadmap
7 May 2014
Airbus has set up the Airbus Composite Recycling Advisory Board to establish the company’s vision, strategy, objectives, and roadmap for recycling and reusing composite materials.
As part of this trans-national and trans-functional programme, various research and technology projects for recycling carbon-fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) composites are either underway or planned at Airbus sites, in partnership with external organisations.
These projects seek to examine and validate the techniques and industrialization for recycling and reusing waste products from the CFRP manufacturing process—including both hard “cured” wastes and softer “uncured” materials.
By the 2020-2025 timeframe, the project targets for 95% of CFRP manufacturing process wastes to go through a recycling channel, with 5% of the waste products to be recycled back into the aerospace sector.
