Sigmatex Receives JEC Innovations Award

april 16 2012

FibreCycle was a 1.5m pound UK research project part-funded by the Technology Strategy Board, an executive body established by the UK Government. It ran for approximately four years and was composed of six partners: Umeco (Lead Partner), Tilsatec, Sigmatex, Exel Composites, Net Composites and the University of Leeds. The aim of this project was to develop materials based on carbon fibres recovered from waste streams to allow manufacturing of technical fabric for thermoplastic and thermoset applications in the composites industry.

The award, which comes under the ‘materials’ category, was presented to Sigmatex (UK) Ltd for work resulting from the FibreCycle programme at the JEC Europe 2012 show in Paris.

FibreCycle successfully demonstrated ground-breaking technology to recover carbon fibres. The project showcased that high-value products based on recovered/recycled carbon fibres could offer commercial potential. These materials, which have significantly lower environmental impact than virgin carbon fibre-based materials, are suitable for many applications, especially in the automotive, aerospace, sports & leisure, medical and energy sectors.
