Recycling technology for composites based on molten salts

SpecialChem / Jun 21, 2006

During two years the Recycomp project that has gathered numerous French partners was aimed at studying the various available solutions and perspectives for recycling of composites such as glass or carbon fiber reinforced composite wastes. Among the different technologies, the molten salt technology that is widely used for metallic wastes seems very attractive for carbon fiber reinforced materials. This technology is based of a reaction medium of molten or dissolved salts at temperatures between 20 to 1500°C, the temperature depending on the salt type. The molten salt bath allows to separate the matrix from the reinforcement that can be then recycled and reused. Researches and tests are underway to improve this technology.
