Reclicado multinivel para compuestos de fibra de carbono y fibra de vidrio.


Reclicado multinivel para compuestos de fibra de carbono y fibra de vidrio.


FIDAMC junto con otras 14 entidades participa dentro del consorcio MC4  en el proyecto europeo: “ Multi-level Circular Process Chain for Carbon and Glass Fibre Composites”. Se afrontarán dos retos  principales, por un lado el reciclado de piezas de fibra de vidrio y fibra de carbono una vez que estas llegan al final de su vida útil  y por otro el reciclado de los deshechos que se genera durante un proceso de fabricación.  Con ello se busca mejorar la sostenibilidad tanto a nivel ambiental como a nivel económico de los composites.

La duración del proyecto es de tres años y una vez finalice se espera poder aportar un valor añadido para la industria de los materiales compuestos ayudando a solucionar la problemática existente relativa a la gestión de los residuos.

El proyecto cuenta con su página web www.mc4-project.eu desde donde se realizará la diseminación los estudios realizados.

A continuación se adjunta el abstract oficial:

“Each year about 110.000t of carbon fiber composite parts and 4.500.000t of glass fiber composites are used. 98% of these parts end up in landfills at the end of their life. To address this problem the MC4 project aims at establishing a multi-level circular process for carbon and glass fiber composite. Multi-level means that processes will be developed for short-term implementation with immediate impact and for the longer term with a wider impact on industry. Carbon and glass fiber have substantially different costs and the project takes this into account by developing economically feasible procedures that are based on chemical matrix/fibre separation for carbon fibre and on a new type of resin for the direct re-use of the composite for glass fibre. Quality grading of the recycled material will be a key element to ensure a proper use in the different domains. Within the supply chain investigated in the project the goal is to achieve a recycling rate of at least 60%.

As an additional benefit, the project will enable European material manufacturers to develop their own, patented processes for manufacturing of recycled material. Currently, 80% of the manufacturing of virgin carbon and glass fibre is taking place outside of Europe and the manufacturing technologies used inside of Europe are often licensed from foreign countries.

MC4 puts particular emphasis on the design and manufacturing of best practice examples of parts made from recycled materials. For five different domains, including automotive, aerospace, sports equipment, boats and urban furniture, composite products will be manufactured, with the aim of demonstrating the use of recycled material and enhancing the demand side for recycled material in the different domains.

The consortium includes process developers, material manufacturers and SME end users, who manufacture composite parts. It covers the whole value chain and thus enables the creation of real circular process for composites”
