Developing high-performance recycled carbon fibre reinforced plastics with tailored mechanical, fracture and fatigue properties using state-of-the-art nano-modification technology

Project description

Closing the loop in the life cycle of carbon fibre reinforced plastics

With climate change posing an ever-increasing threat, countries worldwide are introducing initiatives to combat pollution and decrease the effects of climate change. These include measures to boost recycling of carbon fibre reinforced plastics (CFRPs), a wasteful material. Even though they are made up of a large number of recyclable materials, CFRP products are difficult to breakdown or recycle. The EU-funded d-CFRPs project aims to change this by developing recycled/discontinuous CFRPs that can be recycled even when having undergone serious fatigue or fracture. The proposed novel solution aims to close the loop in the CFRP life cycle, which is vital for the sustainable use of carbon fibres.
