Extracthive presents an innovative recycling technology for carbon fibre-reinforced polymers at JEC World 2022

Since 2016, Extracthive has been developing an innovative recycling technology named PHYre® based on solvolysis for carbon fibre-reinforced polymers. In this approach, a unique combination of solvent and catalyst allows for the depolymerisation of the resin at moderate temperature and pressure, thereby releasing clean and undamaged fibres.

The PHYre® recycling technology offers a sound alternative to current recycling solutions. In addition, the recovered carbon fibres feature high mechanical and surface properties, so they can be used as a substitute for virgin carbon fibres. Last but not least, this technology has a very limited environmental impact, offering recycled carbon fibres with a CO2 footprint ten times lower than virgin fibre.

The conditions used in the PHYre® process allow to :
– keep 98% of tensile strength,
– keep the same strain at break as virgin fibers,
– preserve the diameter of fibers,
– and to have a competitive price.

Discover the PHYre recycling technology:

PHYre® is an innovative technology which uses a chemical treatment on polymerized composites to degrade the polymeric matrix and recover the fibers.

The recycled carbon fibers reclaimed have similar properties of pristine fibers and are a viable solution to be used in applications where high strength-to-weight ratios are required such as sports & leisure and non-structural parts of automobiles, trains and airplanes.

After treatment recycled carbon fibers can either be sold directly or reprocessed to obtain a semi-product. The company proposes different kind of recycled carbon fiber products depending of the customers’ needs.

Extracthive’s recycling technology will be on JEC World 2022, the leading international composites show, which will take place on 3-5 May 2022 in Paris Nord Villepinte, France. Visit their booth: Hall 6, Booth G3.
