Pyrolysis and Gasification group publishes a patent which allows the complete recycling of waste carbon fibre reinforced polymers.
First publication date: 14/10/2016
The patent defines a method to treat the vapours that are generated in the recycling process of carbon fibres by pyrolysis. This way, apart from the recovery of the fibres, a hydrogen-rich high value gas can be obtained, which allows the separation of hydrogen for sale. The global result is the valorization of the carbon fibres and the polymeric resin at the same time.
