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.
The award recognizes innovative reuse of recycled carbon-fiber composite materials.
Together with MIT-RCF, SCRA recognized Oracle Team USA for their design and commercial integration of reclaimed carbon fiber from composites. The award is designed to honor the leaders in innovative reuse of recycled carbon-fiber composite materials.Oracle Team USA recycled two of their racing yachts, recovering carbon from the boats and repurposing that recycled material into a mold for the next-generation watercraft. The carbon was recovered using a closed loop process in a geothermal plant and was then shipped to Team Oracle USA’s supplier, Core Composites, for repurposing. The reclaimed material is more economically efficient and is becoming a standardized raw material used to make the molds for composites. The unused recycled carbon fiber was sent to MIT-RCF, which is based in Lake City, S.C.More information: www.scra.org
