"The current research project deals with the environmental impact, economics and social aspects of the recycling of the materials used for aircaft building.
As it has been mentioned the first objective of this proposal is the realization of a market survey on the most important a/c and/or materials used in the actual CS EDA.
After the definition of the materials together with the topic manager, in a second step, price or revenue expectations (ranges) have to be generated, in order to provide a data base for future economic assessment.
In a third step, a methodology proposal should combine the expected market data with the current and expected future steps for a/c dismantling, treatment, and recycling. Regarding dismantling and recycling of aircrafts, their parts and materials, the outcome will be an economic method for decision-making along with an actual a/c industry specific set of data (materials, processes) covering both state of the art processes and those developed in the CleanSky Eco Design project.
The new recycling methodology, based on an actualized survey market will open the door to direct business opportunity for scrap recovery companies, and also indirect business with the use of secondary materials (as recovery carbon fibres (rCF)) in new markets. For instance, the automotive sector whose prices are extremely restricted, a traceability and quality secondary material from the aircraft sector could have an important status."
