  • Recycling / Circular Economy
  • Utilization ans Solutions
  • Applications and Performance for recycled Carbon Fibres

During this talk the speaker will present the current status of the global recycling industry. Therefore, he will present a statistical waste model containing data from the past (cut-off rate, fly-buy ratio, production capabilities etc.) and forcast data to present the development of CFRP and CF wastestreams. Those Data will be showing the increasing waste amount divided by sources and products. After that he will present a rough overview of modern recycling technologies like pyrolysis (microwave and conventional) as well as solvolysis, carding and wet laying. He will focus on research questions that are solved and have to be solved to enable the industry for a real circular economy, containing the utilization of CF in steel and cement manufacturing. In the end he will talk about products and their properties made with recycled fibres. Technologies like forming and back moulding of thermoplastic rCF-organisheets or wet compression moulding are actual possible for rCF nonwoven products and will be explained in terms of cycle time, properties and lot size. Fraunhofer have several projects at the moment to evaluate the properties of rCF products and benchmark them to other material like glass textile or virgin carbon fibre. The results of those projects will be shown and an outlook will be given. rCF have a high potential for CO2 neutral material and substitution of virgin materials that can fit to both automotive and aerospace industry.
