ALPHA RECYCLAGE COMPOSITES
The french company Alpha Recyclage Composites, in partnership with the Clément Ader Institute and the Mines Albi-Carmaux engineering school develops an activity in the recycling of composites containing carbon fibre by using steam-thermolysis technology.
Its developments also concern the manufacturing process of semi-finished products using recycled fibres and the validation of the conditions of re-use of these treated fibres in second-generation composites.
The areas of application covered by the future industrial sector include civil and military aviation and the automotive sector. Steam-thermolysis technology is already implemented on an industrial scale by a sister company, Alpha Recycling Franche-Comté, for recycling used tires.
