Within the frame of the research project RecyCarb a qualified value-added chain shall be initiated for recycled carbon fibres (rCF), enabling the high-quality and sustainable re-use in sophisticated fibre-reinforced plastics in the area of transportation, sports equipment or medical technology. The technological gap between the actual rCF available at the market and the functional re-use as reinforcing elements in high-quality parts has to be closed. This will be achieved by developments in all parts of the process chain, combined with the initiation of a reliable scheme of quality assurance. Based on this information, a monitoring system will be realised, comprising the whole process. The results will contribute to largely preservation of fibre properties and functionality. This avoids downcycling and enables multiple use of the energy-intensive produced carbon fibres.
The research project RecyCarb has been initiated in 2016; this presentation comprises results of the preliminary work, the project structure and first project results.
