23rd November 2023, AMRC, Rotherham

Hear the latest news on the commercialisation of composites recycling in the UK

After the success of our 2nd RECOMP conference last year (Reuse and Recycling of Composites) and with composites repurposing & recycling activity growing and accelerating in the UK and beyond, we’ve decided to make RECOMP an annual event. It will be held this year on November 23rd (once again at the AMRC in Rotherham) as a one-day event focussed exclusively on updates on processes and activities now being scaled-up and commercialised in the UK. So, if you want to get a comprehensive overview of all the latest developments in composites reuse, repurposing and recycling in the UK, and meet all the key players in this increasingly critical activity to close the composites loop, creating much needed circularity with the composites value chain, please join us!


This event will begin at 9.45am (registraton from 9am), and run through until 4pm. An optional tour of AMRC will be offered from 4pm – 4.45pm.
