Carbon fiber processing

Because energy consumption during primary fiber manufacturing is high, the interest in recycling carbon fibers is huge. The first step is to remove the fiber from the matrix by pyrolysis.

Grimmschirp technology allows fibers to be turned into nonwoven mats, which can be used in high-quality molded parts just like virgin fibers can. These types of high-quality carbon fibers could also be used in new areas like lightweight construction.
