National Composites Centre

** THIS EVENT IS NOW FULL - BOOKING CLOSED**

Join the ReDisCoveR project team for a composites end of life event bringing together major players from industry in a day of four workshops focusing on recycling, disassembly, circular materials, and reuse.

During these workshops, you will be able to have your say in steering the direction of major composites end of life projects, and have the opportunity to join influential and proactive consortia looking to cause a step change in the way the world thinks about composites and the circular economy. The High Value Manufacturing Catapult (HVMC) will be the driving force behind planning and bid writing efforts, turning these CR&D concepts into reality.
