Workshop on recycled carbon fiber composites
The workshop on “Recycled carbon fibers for high-quality composite materials” will take place on November 28, 2019 in the Palazzo Granafei-Nervegna in Brindisi, Italy. The event is being organized by the research organization CETMA (Brindisi) and the industrial group Suez (Paris, France) in cooperation with the carbon fiber recycling specialist ELG Carbon Fiber (Coseley, UK) and endorsement from aerospace, defense and security company Leonardo Co. (Rome, Italy).
The aim of the workshop is to promote effective communication between the companies in the value chain. The latest developments and innovations in recycled carbon fibers will be featured by key companies in the industry. The presentations will focus on the properties of recycled carbon fibers, transformation processes for composites and devices
Presentations will be given by two leading companies in the field of recycled carbon fiber on a global scale: Torsten Müller from Fraunhofer ICT (Pfinztal, Germany), who will focus on the transport sector, and Frazer Barnes from ELG Carbon Fiberwho will contextualize the role of recycling in the development of the carbon fiber industry.
The workshop is part of the dissemination activities of the REVALUE project, which is aimed at “REcycled carbon Fibers for composite materials with high value. “
The full agenda and information on how to attend can be found on the event website.

World of Filament Winding 2019
MF Tech Srl. (Argentan, France) announces its World of Filament Winding 2019 Convention, which will take place November 26-27, 2019 in Ermenonville, France.
The last conference on filament development took place in 2005. After 13 years, the company has decided to bring all stakeholders in the filament winding industry back together. Since then, the world has changed, the company says: As cell phones have become intelligent smartphones, industrial equipment with lightweight designs and high-performance drives has become more productive. The need for energy efficient structures in various structural applications can be met with composites. To that end, filament development has strengthened its position in this new world and new markets will continue to emerge.
