The Composite Recycling Technology Center (CRTC), a non-profit corporation focused on growing the global composite recycling sector, and ELG Carbon Fibre Ltd. (ELG) a Coseley, UK-based company involved in developing new uses for scrap carbon fiber products, have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to collaborate on carbon fiber recycling efforts.
Under the terms of the MoU, the CRTC, headquartered in Port Angeles, Washington, and ELG will develop ways to use the carbon fiber that gets reclaimed by ELG’s pyrolysis process, and turn it into value-added products.
“We are thrilled and honored to be working with an outstanding company like ELG. Their industry-leading recycling process and technical know-how allows for them to recover carbon fiber from cured materials at a very competitive price. We see opportunities to combine their recovered carbon fiber with our repurposed carbon fiber pre-preg to produce a wide range of value-added products,” says David Walter, COO of CRTC.
