RECOMP – Reuse and Recycling of Composites

Wednesday, 23 - Thursday, 24 Nov 2022

AMRC, Sheffield

Tim Young - Head of Sustainability, Vicky Summers - Principal Research Engineer, James Graham - Chief Engineer: Surface Transport, Kyle Pender - Advanced Research Engineer, from the National Composites Centre, will be participating in RECOMP 2022 - Reuse and Recycling of Composites, organised by Composites UK. 

Returning for a second time after a successful launch in 2020, the Recomp conference will look at all aspects of re-use, repurposing and recycling of fibre-reinforced polymer composite materials and will be hosted at the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre near Sheffield, UK.

Who should attend:

  • Composites part producers – designers, production managers, waste managers
  • Waste managers wanting to learn more about this growing market opportunity
  • Academics and researchers developing potential technologies to enable greater reuse, repurposing or recycling of composites
  • Raw material suppliers investigating options for more circular raw materials for composites
  • Everyone with an interest in creating a more circular economy with composites

Topics covered:

Recomp 2022 will cover the following topics:

  • The composites end of life challenge – views from UK, Europe and globally
  • The OEM views on end-of-life composites by sector
  • The potential reuse/repurposing opportunities
  • The potential recycling opportunities
  • Navigating the challenge – how to make the right decisions about composites waste
