AVK presents study on composite recycling

Together with IKK, AVK has prepared a comprehensive study on composites recycling.


The study by AVK-Industrievereinigung Verstärkte Kunststoffe e.V. and IKK, Institute for Plastics and Recycling Management at Leibniz University in Hanover, Germany, is said to offer a systematic and comprehensive overview of the waste volumes generated and the current as well as future solutions for high-quality recycling of fiber-reinforced composites. The study also reportedly evaluates the advantages and disadvantages of the various processes and considers relevant legal requirements and standards. The composites recycling study, which has now been published and was prepared by IKK Institute Director Professor Hans-Josef Endres and Dr. Madina Shamsuyeva with the support of industry representatives from the AVK expert working group, is said to be the first major study on the subject of composites recycling. Composites offered enormous advantages, particularly in the area of lightweight construction, emphasizes the AVK, and can also deliver high added value in terms of sustainability. Why composites are advantageous had so far been investigated little systematically or rather selectively. The study is reportedly available immediately from AVK as a PDF. It costs 799 euros plus VAT, AVK members receive the study for a reduced price of 399 euros plus VAT.
