In this episode of CWTalks, CW editor Jeff Sloan interviews Andrew Maxey, CEO and founder of Vartega (Golden, Colo., U.S.), a Colorado-based carbon fiber recycler.

Andrew started Vartega five years ago in his garage as a newcomer to the composites industry. Since then he’s developed a chemical-based carbon fiber recycling and recovery process, has grown his company and recently moved into a new 10,000-square-foot facility in Golden, Colorado. Jeff and Andrew  discuss carbon fiber waste, carbon fiber recovery, and the still-growing market for recovered fibers.
