The SPE Automotive and Composites Divisions jointly sponsor the annual Automotive Composites Conference & Exhibition (ACCE). This event is designed to educate and update automotive design and production engineers, sales personnel, and management from transportation OEMs and Tier suppliers about the benefits and expanding importance of thermoset and thermoplastic composites in passenger vehicles, light trucks, and other ground transportation applications. ACCE is the world’s leading automotive composites forum.
Andrew Maxey, CEO of Vartega, will be presenting on a paper co-authored by Vartega, Steelhead Composites, and Michelman entitled: Fabrication of A Recycled Tow Carbon Fiber Overwrapped Pressure Vessel. The presentation will take place at 11:00 AM EDT in the Opal/Garnet room on September 7, 2017.
Composites World is a leading industry publication that reports on all things relevant and innovative in the composites industry. They have long standing interest in the recycling of composites that dates back over a decade. In the August 2017 issue of their publication, Sara Black reports on the state of the composites recycling industry and the traction that is being made in efforts to commercialize recycling technologies.
The article addresses all the major players in the recycling industry, including Vartega Inc, and the efforts that are being made to make widespread recycling of carbon fiber a reality. Sara states that if the automotive industry adopts carbon fiber use in large scale production that it would cause supply chain issues for virgin carbon fiber which can be mitigated through the use of recycled carbon fiber.
