Analysis of the results in CENIM-CSIC

The study of the physico-chemical properties of the recycled fibers carried out in Research Centre CENIM-CSIC shows the optimal conditions of the R3FIBER process allow the obtention of fibers with barely modified elastic modulus that maintains around 90% of the...

Recycling through R3FIBER technology

Once raw materials are ready (composites from wind blades) the treatment by R3FIBER technology is performed, in which glass and carbon fiber reinforced composite is subjected to different heating curves in controlled atmosphere and temperature, and after that a...

Reception and preparation of the material for its treatment

Reception of the wind blade takes place on TRC installations, where pilot plant is located. In these installations operations of cutting, segregation and selection of the wind blade components are performed, separating segments of glass fiber, carbon fiber nucleus,...
