Thermal recycling of composites is now
Recycling of fiber reinforced plastics
Has been developed by bcircular, spin-off of the Spanish National Research Council (CSIC), with the aim of allowing the integral recovery of wind turbine blades, and other composites covering a growing need of recycling this materials. A highly energy-efficient, closed process allows obtaining high quality glass and carbon fibres, together with sub-products that can be re-used as fuel within the process itself, or to produce heat and energy. The recovered high-quality fibers can be re-used within the wind sector, or their respective sectors of origin, thus contributing to circular economy.
Allows circular economy
bcircular allows applying circular economy in various sectors
bcircular has been recognized by various entities
