RECYTAL – Recycling glass fibre reinforced composite insulators and production scrap in construction applications

The project is a preliminary project aiming at investigating the potential for reuse of glass fibre-reinforced polymer (GFRP) composite insulators. The idea is to use the material in infrastructure and construction applications instead of burning or discarding in landfill. The project will also investigate how glass fibre offcuts/left-overs from the manufacture of insulators can be used for polymer composites for construction applications. The project may contribute to the introduction of an industrial recycling chain for glass fiber reinforced polymer composite materials.
