Dillon Garcia-Wright

Over the last year, I have interned with Vartega, a carbon fiber recycling company in the composites sector located in Golden, CO. Throughout my experience interning at Vartega, I had the opportunity to research Vartega’s recycling technology on different resin systems as well as the mechanical properties from their pelletized fiber products. Although these were interesting projects to work on, the bigger picture was what fascinated me the most. It was very cool to work in an industry that has so much more to discover and are just scratching the surface of something much bigger. In a world where there is so much scrap from manufacturing that goes to waste, the work that Vartega and other recycling companies do is more important than ever right now and I’m glad that I got to be a small part of that.
