A cutting-edge recycling system for carbon fiber composites

In contrast to traditional waste-management techniques using pyrolysis or solvolysis, known for their high energy consumption, our process relies on mechanical treatment. 

Rather than grinding the waste, we use high-tech proprietary cutting technologies, incorporating robotics and machine learning. This allows us to keep fibers and resin together and maintain fiber length, to obtain higher mechanical performance than traditional recycling techniques.

We offer you a cost-effective process and a smooth transition from your existing methods of handling CFRP waste.

We were able to stop landfilling thanks to our collaboration with Fairmat. It allows us to recycle our CFRP products and give a second life to carbon fiber composite.

Cécile CECCATO, Environment Manager

At Siemens Gamesa we are committed to the transition to a circular economy. We have the desire to minimize the waste from our processes and products, and we rely on partners like Fairmat in our strategic development.

Jonas JENSEN, Sustainability Specialist Manager

We are in line with our partnership with Fairmat to recycle the CFRP waste for utmost sustainability and the lowest carbon footprint. This will enable us to give a 2nd life and a 2nd purpose to some of the carbon reinforced parts of the latest generation end-of-life aircraft.
