Recycling of composite materials
The market of glass, carbon or natural fibre reinforced plastics is growing: these materials are used in a variety of industrial segments (transport, construction, sports and leisure, wind sector, aeronautics...).
In a context of transition towards a circular economy, Certech is developing treatment modes of production waste and end-of-life composites:
- Mechanical recycling (Plastics to Plastics):
- Thermoplastic composites : formulation, processing/manufacturing, evaluation of mechanical properties, emissions of volatile organic compounds (VOC), odours and remediation
- Thermoset composites : recycling as fillers in thermoplastic compounds
- Thermochemical recycling (Plastics to Chemicals, Plastics to Liquids): solvolysis and pyrolysis processes, with recovering of fibres
Certech relies on the expertise of a multidisciplinary team in the fields of materials and processes to offer the most relevant recycling solutions.
