Continued high growth rates for the carbon fibre composites industry are predicted by industry forecasters. However, these high growth rates are on new applications, largely in the transportation and electronics sectors. To make these predictions a reality requires lower cost CF products suited to emerging high-volume manufacturing processes. Industrial scale processes are available to recover carbon fibre from manufacturing and end of life wastes. The challenge has been to convert these materials into usable products and gain an understanding of the performance that can be achieved in end use applications. This presentation discusses the progress made over in these areas and presents case studies illustrating the application of recycled carbon fibres.
