From waste to resource, from discarded material heading for landfill to secondary raw material, with innovative technical properties. This is the new life being proposed for carbon fiber by the EcoCarbonio project, one of the 33 winners of the “Call Hub Research and Innovation” competition held by Lombardy Region and partially financed through POR-FESR 2014-2020 funding.
The objectives, applications and strengths of the project are illustrated in this video made by the engineer Flavio Caretto of project partner ENEA’s Laboratory of Functional Materials and Technologies for Sustainable Applications (MATAS):
