JEC Group have brought together the international community of composites leaders and executives in our Composites Circle as an unique networking opportunity to meet with both peers and future partners.
Recently, Boeing has officially signed a cooperation agreement with East China University of Science and Technology (ECUST) School of materials science and engineering Zhao Chongjun Project team. Both sides agree to start substantial cooperation on the carbon fiber material recycling from carbon fiber reinforced polymer composite materials.
This cooperation aims to explore a new carbon fiber recovery route using solar technology from the thermoset polymer based CFRP. They hope to develop a low energy consumption, large CFRP size, and high efficiency recovery method.CFRP has been more and more widely used in the high-end fields of aerospace, automotive, military and other products. The waste recycling and reuse of CFRP has got much attention. Because the existing technology generally has large energy consumption, second time pollution, and is difficult or impossible to obtain orderly and lengthy carbon fiber (CFs) material therefore seeking efficient recovery method has become the key of waste recycling and reuse.The following representatives from ECUST and Boeing have attended the signing ceremony:
