INDUSTRIAL RECYCLING OF CFRP BY EMULSIFICATION

Objective

"The project aim at developing a plant for the sustainable, cost effective, purely physical recycling of thermosetting and thermoplastic carbon fibres reinforced composites typically obtained from the dismantling of End-of-Life Aircrafts. The plant is based on an innovative process of emulsification of grinded and sorted CFRP into a thermoplastic matrix, followed by lamination or pelletization. Potential application of the recycled compounds are automotive, interior and outdoor design, as well as non-structural components in aircraft industry. The latter should have properties comparable to those of virgin materials, but with lower cost. A feasibility plan in the real industrial environment will be obtained, also considering the possibility of adaptation of existing industrial plants. Technical and economical implications will be highlighted, together with their impact on the environment during the production cycle with reference to the healthy human oriented working. A risk assessment plan will be supplied."
