THE COMPOSITES RECYCLING CONFERENCE 

_____________________________________________________________________________


ABOUT THE CONFERENCE

The 2018 Composites Recycling Conference brought nearly 90 experts and industry professionals from the U.S. and around the world to Knoxville, TN, on April 10-12. The inaugural event highlighted the most relevant technology and business developments which are turning composites recycling into a reality. This conference:
 
  • Connected businesses and industry stakeholders with an international professional network
  • Shared findings from research institutions who are making composites recycling happen
  • Supported the development of a self-sustaining composites recycling ecosystem

 Conference Recap

The conference program featured panel discussions and presentations from companies, including Boeing, Owens Corning, the Composite Recycling Technology Center, EuCIA, University of Tennessee - Knoxville, University of Strathclyde, Ashland, and ELG Carbon Fibre. Notable sessions focused on how recycled composites can be used to create products that have purpose and value. The comprehensive program addressed a range of topics, from recycling and reusing thermoplastic and thermoset CFRPs to state-of-the-art recycling technology.

Four dynamic companies exhibited their latest recycling technology and products. Jeff Austad of Ventilation Solutions, a conference exhibitor and sponsor said, “We were pleasantly surprised with the conference. It was very informative and had a good mix of customers, suppliers and academia…we really wanted to understand more about composites recycling and what role we could play in the overall process.” Industry suppliers, distributors, and manufacturers met with exhibitors, asked questions, and gained hands-on experience with recycled products during networking breaks.

As a bonus, over 30 attendees toured three dynamic facilities: IACMI — The Composites Institute Lab at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, Oak Ridge National Laboratory Manufacturing Demonstration Facility, and Local Motors. The participants witnessed how government funded laboratories are addressing their unique challenges and making strides, including developing a robust and scalable composite recycling methodology as well as how a local manufacturer is creating products from recycled carbon fiber.
