The desire for sustainability and recyclability of materials continues to increase across end markets, and recycled composite materials are rising to meet that need. CW’s editors are tracking the latest trends and developments in recycled composites. What follows is a collection of three recent CW features that detail the current state of the industry and recent success stories across aerospace, automotive and rail applications.
The state of recycled carbon fiber
Recycled carbon on the rails
Recycled thermoplastic composites for production
As the need for carbon fiber rises, can recycling fill the gap?
Multi-year R&D at ThermoPlastic composites Applications Center (TPAC), Toray and Clean Sky 2 demonstrate economic advantage of serial production using recycled materials.
Aiming to increase the cost-weight viability of carbon fiber-reinforced composite structural components in railway vehicles, a prototype rail bogie prominently features recycled carbon fiber.
