Recycling issues in polymer matrix composites

V. Goodship,     University of Warwick, UK

Abstract:

Waste disposal strategy is dominated by the so-called four ‘R’s; reduce, reuse, recycle, recover. This chapter looks at the options and issues for reuse, recycling and recovery of polymer matrix composites. Whilst viable recycling solutions have been found for pure, single-stream, generic plastic materials, composite materials and especially thermosets continue to be problematic in terms of meeting future recycling, recovery and sustainability targets. This chapter with provide an overview of the current state of the art in polymer composite research. It will highlight major research areas and outstanding questions and look to the composite ...
