27th & 28th November 2024, University of Warwick

All industries urgently need to increase their circularity, reducing their use of virgin resources and increasing their use of recycled resources, as part of the drive towards a net-zero, more sustainable world, and the Composites industry is no exception. As a result of this need, there has been a big increase in the effort being made globally to develop and commercialise processes which can enable greater reuse and recycling of composite materials, both production waste and end-of-life waste material, and a real focus on developing new market applications for products with ever greater recycled composite content.

RECOMP 2024 is THE major UK event focussed on the reuse and recycling of composite materials and this year RECOMP has been expanded to a full 2-day event on November 27th & 28th to allow us to include as many contributions as possible from all points of the value chain and all levels of Technology Readiness. So, if you are working in the field of reuse and recycling of composite materials, we would like to hear from you so that we can consider including your contribution in the programme for RECOMP 2024.

In particular, we would welcome abstracts on the following topics:

  • Examples of commercial products utilising recovered or recycled glass and carbon fibre materials
  • Examples of commercial products made by mechanical recycling of composite waste materials
  • Examples of development concept products made with or from composite waste materials
  • Examples of sector circularity showing how composite waste (production waste or end of life waste) can be collected and recycled into new product forms for use in that sector or other sectors
  • The development, scale up or commercialisation of processes enabling the reuse, recovery or recycling of composite waste materials
  • The development, scale up or commercialisation of processes enabling the repair and life extension of composite materials
  • Examples of organisations who are recovering and recycling their own production waste for use in their own commercial products
  • Examples of organisations who are collecting end-of-life composite waste from users for reuse, recovery and recycling of composite materials

If you think you’ve made an important development that will help increase the circularity of fibre-reinforced composite materials, then we would like to hear from you!

Please submit an abstract (maximum 300 words) describing your product, process or activity and its contribution to the increased circularity of composite materials, to events@compositesuk.co.uk by Friday July 26th latest.

We will advise if your abstract has been accepted by the end of August.
