Disposal of CFRP/ GFRP

CFRP / GFRP in the lightweight construction industry

Increasing consumption is leading to large volumes of waste

Carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP) and glass fiber reinforced plastics (GRP) are gaining ground in the lightweight construction industry. However, the increasing consumption of these plastics also means a larger amount of waste.

First steps towards environmentally friendly disposal of CFRP/ GFRP.
However, the disposal of carbon fibers is still considered very complex to date. Only a few specialist companies, such as ROTH International, have developed ways of recovering these fibers and have thus opened up new fields of application in the lightweight construction industry. This means great progress in terms of the environment and the production of secondary raw materials.

Areas of application for CFRP / GFRP.
CFRP / GFRP are used in various sectors such as:

  • Automotive industry
  • Means of transportation (bicycles)
  • Energy technology (wind power)
  • Mechanical engineering
  • Aerospace engineering
  • Production waste from CFRP / GFRP
  • Finished products made of CFRP / GFRP, etc.

Disposal of objects containing fiber composites.
CFRP / GFRP objects from these areas will be disposed of by ROTH International, using the latest methods such as:

Disposal of composites

ROTH International in its capacity as waste management company pursuant to Section 56 of the German Closed Substance Cycle and Waste Management Act (KrW-/AbfG)

Steel, balsa wood, resins, CFRP, GFRP and other composites are contained in numerous objects such as rotor blades, vessels/trains or airplanes. Being certified according to Section 56 of the German Closed Substance Cycle and Waste Management Act (KrW-/AbfG), ROTH International is offering you the professional disposal of these materials. As a holder of the industry-specific seal of quality awarded under the German Closed Substance Cycle and Waste Management Act (KrW-/AbfG), ROTH International has been officially recognized as a quality waste management company.

 

Complex recovery processes for CFRP / GFRP

The RRC Certificate from ROTH International

Innovative methods are a prerequisite for the successful disposal of CFRP/ GFRP.
The poor separability of composites such as carbon and fiberglass make the recycling process not entirely easy. That is why ROTH International has been developing in-house techniques allowing the cutting, stripping-down, recycling and disposal of these substances.

Certified guaranteed professional handling during disposal.
As a certified waste management company, we guarantee the environmentally conscious recycling of materials. Throughout the entire project chain, we abide by the basic principle of disposal in accordance with Section 56 of the German Closed Substance Cycle and Waste Management Act (KrW-/AbfG). To us, compliance with minimum standards for cutting, recycling, stripping-down or disposing of CFRP / GFRP is par for the course. The aim of our project management is to recycle the materials to the greatest extent possible.

Seamless documentation of the disposal.
The RRC certificate ("ROTH-Recycling-Certificate") will be handed out to you at the end of the project, together with a complete documentation of the processing and transport of your materials. This way you can be sure that your materials are being processed in an environmentally friendly manner. Discreet and serious handling of the data is a matter of course.

Complete disposal of objects made of CFRP / GFRP

The complete process chain - carried out by ROTH International

Integrated disposal of objects made of fiber composites.
Thanks to their material properties, glass-fiber reinforced and carbon-fiber reinforced plastics are very popular in the production of a wide variety of objects. That is why a more complex procedure is to be expected for the

 Unlike ROTH International, many waste disposal companies have no way of disposing of the composites in a professional manner. We undertake to treat your object in an environmentally friendly manner right from the outset, whether during  cutting, stripping-down, recycling, or during disposal.

Clean cutting and separating for the virtually residue-free recycling of CFRP / GFRP.
ROTH International optimizes existing cutting and separation processes and recycling methods especially for materials such as CFRP / GFRP. Centralized waste disposal management yields efficient work results without any problems, whether offshore or onshore- After cutting the items into smaller components, the material is separated. With carbon fiber reinforced and glass fiber reinforced plastics, this process is complex due to the difficulty of separating the mixed materials, but ROTH International is one of the few companies who know how to do this.

Working to the highest standards, ROTH International is likewise skilled in the disposal of other objects.
Whenever possible, the recyclable materials are processed and recycled. Non-recyclable materials are disposed of professionally in accordance with Section 56 of the German Closed Substance Cycle and Waste Management Act (KrW-/AbfG) and the prescribed standards. ROTH International will handle the entire disposal process for your objects. ROTH International is completely flexible and works independently of power sources and transport connections.
We also handle the

  • Disposal of hydro power plants
  • Disposal of pipelines 
  • Disposal of photovoltaics plants
  • Disposal of chemical plants
  • Disposal of dams, etc.

Trust us to handle the complete disposal of your object. If you can't find your particular object in our lists, simply give us a call.
