FiberEUse - Large-scale demonstration of new circular economy value-chains based on the reuse of end-of-life fiber reinforced composites


Glass and carbon fiber-reinforced polymer composites (GFP and CFP) are increasingly used as structural materials in many manufacturing sectors like transport, construction and energy due to their better lightweight and corrosion resistance compared to metals. Composite recycling is a challenging task. Although mechanical grinding and pyrolysis reached a quite high TRL, landfilling of EoL composites is still widespread since no significant added value in the re-use and remanufacturing of composites is demonstrated.

The FiberEUse project aims to integrate different innovation actions desgined to enhance composite recycling profitability and reuse in value-added products.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement No 730323.
