Abstract

Global production of composite materials in 2015 will significantly exceed 10 million tons. Glass fibre reinforced composites account for more than 90% of all the fibre-reinforced composites currently produced. Development of economically viable processes for recycling end-of-life glass fibre composites would have major economic and environmental impacts. This presentation introduces the ReCoVeR projects on enabling cost-effective performance regeneration of glass-fibres from thermal recycling of end-of-life automotive and wind energy composites. ReCoVeR technology targets treating glass fibre thermally reclaimed from GRP waste in order to regenerate a performance level which is equivalent to new fibres. Composite materials reinforced with ReCoVeR glass fibres can currently attain over 80% of the reinforcement performance of composites produced with pristine glass fibres.
