Yesterday, it was announced that the German firm CFK Recycling was the winner of the Sustainable Industry Challenge – Chemport Europe edition. This scale-up has developed a method for sustainably recycling carbon fibres. CFK Recycling won € 100,000 to spend on Teijin Aramid’s sustainability challenge; recycling aramid.
Teijin Aramid looking forward to working with CFK Recycling
Edward Groen, Energy Transition & Sustainable Development Director at Teijin Aramid, is enthusiastic about working with CFK Recycling. “This scale-up has already made tremendous advances in recycling the carbon fibres used in aircraft, cars and windmill blades. We’re going to launch a small-scale pilot together on recycling aramid.” Combining our talents will help us take a giant stride forward in achieving our ultimate goal; a completely sustainable and circular aramid chain.
About the Sustainable Industry Challenge
The key underlying goal of the Sustainable Industry Challenge goes much further than simply holding a competition. The organisation hopes that it will result in connections being established between more than 200 companies from around the world and local companies; in fact, the first links have already been made between the 40 participants. This major competition, based on challenges formulated by industrial companies, challenged innovative companies to devise concrete innovations in the field of sustainable recycling, hydrogen and green chemistry.
