Cradle To Cradle Composites
Sustainable and Cradle to Cradle composite solutions based on aerospace grade mineral fiber and bio based epoxy resin.
A solution was identified to propose sustainable and cradle to cradle composite manufacturing. The final product is based on an innovative aerospace grade mineral fiber and recyclable bio-based epoxy resin. To prove the technology readiness of the solution a small sail racing boat was built. The project was shortlisted for the JEC World 2018 Innovation Awards in the sustainability section. The Cradle to Cradle recycling process was demonstrated at lab scale, the fiber can be completely reclaimed from cured composite and sent to the furnace again to obtain new virgin fiber with no performances downgrade and the resin reclaimed as clean epoxy thermoplastic raw material.
