ELG Carbon Fibre Ltd. (Coseley, West Midlands, UK), a specialist in recycled carbon fiber materials, will present a paper at CAMX, titled “Recycling Carbon Fibre – Addressing the Issues of High-Volume Supply.” ELG notes that while recycled carbon fibere products offer significant environmental and economic benefits, questions regarding supply chain security, product consistency and the availability of design data have to be answered before the materials can be considered for high-volume applications. To address these concerns, ELG has focused on developing a range of products based on carbon fiber prepreg and laminate waste—the most widely available source of secondary carbon fiber. The products ELG has develop as a result are Carbiso M and Carbiso TM, nonwoven mats offered either in aligned or isotropic formats that can be used with thermoset or thermoplastic resins in high-volume manufacturing processes. ELG will present the results of work that has been done to characterise the properties of these materials and provide examples of their use in automotive applications. Frazer Barnes, managing director of ELG Carbon Fibre, will be on hand to answer questions and inquiries.
