Representing a large part of the European Composites industry, EuCIA has been actively involved in two major areas.
In order to allow composite component manufacturers and key stakeholders to create a cradle-to-gate Eco Footprint, the Eco Calculator tool has been developed. The tool provides a reliable and credible calculation of the ecological impact of composites parts. Both the underlying data and method for data processing are consistent and transparent, complying with international standards and guidelines.
In addition, EuCIA has taken the lead to define the size of composite end-of-life waste streams per market segment and to make an inventory of applicable legislation around Europe. Establishing a collaboration with key industry associations (including WindEurope), EuCIA is actively contributing to the development and proliferation of composite waste recycling technologies, and the creation of associated communication tools.
During the presentation the latest updates in these fields and the outlook for the coming years will be shared.
