Sustainability

We are committed to a sustainable future for the application of composites.  Our approach as a sustainable business, is to future-proof composites by optimising their resource efficiency through continually exploring novel materials, process capability and informed application.  Our goal is to ensure end-of-life is managed through the design stage to close the loop on material use and integrate composites as a circular economy.

How we can help

Circular Economy and End-of-Life

  • Develop recycling, repair, remanufacture and reuse
  • Create solutions for existing product at the end-of-life
  • Incorporate end-of-life planning into the design process

Life Cycle Analysis and Value Stream Mapping

  • Utilise data for intelligent business decision-making
  • Utilise product and value chain flows for efficiency in resources and cost

Application of Sustainable Materials

  • Create opportunity for the use of alternative feedstock (i.e. novel resin and fibre systems)
  • Upscale and develop concept from material system to functional product

COVID-19 update

Following the Prime Minister’s Briefing on Monday 23 March where he gave clear guidance for the nation to stay at home, and in line with University of Bristol action to close down all of its buildings, the NCC has taken the decision to close both the NCC HQ and NCC Filton centres until further notice, effective from 24 March 2020. 

The vast majority of NCC staff have already been working from home, successfully holding digital meetings with our members, customers and other partners and will continue to do so. You can still get in touch with us through your usual contacts via email and phone, or please email info@nccuk.com. We are in touch with our customers to discuss arrangements for our current projects.

Thank you for your understanding and patience. We will continue to update our website and social media channels to keep you informed.
