Recycling & recovery of CFRP / GFRP

Increased demand for CFRP / GFRP

Carbon fibers are popular in lightweight construction

The recycling innovation for CFRP / GFRP materials, developed by ROTH International.
ROTH International has developed its own processes for the clean separation of materials, which is the basis of sustainable recycling. They allow the large-scale recovery of pure carbon fibers. As CFRP / GFRP are used in many objects, ROTH International has the know-how to recycle them, e.g. when:

Recycling of CFRP / GFRP originating from various industries, production waste, or finished products.
Thanks to their unique properties, the use of carbon fiber and glass fiber reinforced plastics has enormous advantages lightweight construction projects. Many areas benefit from the positive properties of these fibers, for example

  • 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.

Rising demands call for new recycling-methods.
The increasing consumption of carbon and glass fiber reinforced materials translates into an enormous amount of waste. However, the disposal of these fibers is considered rather complex. That is because the separation process of so-called composites is only possible with the aid of special techniques. This is why most specialist disposal companies reach their limits when recycling CFRP / GFRP.

So unique - sustainable recycling of CFRP / GFRP for direct reuse. Have we piqued your interest?

Recycling of CFRP / GFRP by ROTH International

Novel techniques for the optimized use of resources

Recycling methods developed in-house are used for effective waste disposal management, for example when disposing of carbon fiber reinforced plastics. Due to its bonding with other materials, the fiber-reinforced plastic is difficult to separate and recycle. ROTH International is one of a few specialist companies to offer the environmentally friendly disposal of composites - from cutting, to dismantling, to recycling:

Environmentally friendly recycling of rotor blades

ROTH International - your specialist for CFRP / GFRP recycling

There are not many specialist companies offering methods for recycling CFRP / GFRP.
The recycling of CFRP / GRP as the main components of rotor blades is a particularly important topic for the operators of wind turbines. Recycling can only be done at great expense. This is why many waste management companies have reached their limits with CFRP (carbon fiber reinforced plastics).

It takes a bit of innovative spirit to come up with sustainable ways for recycling.
ROTH International's own research has yielded methods for making the recycling of rotor blades sustainable and environmentally sound. The large quantities of materials to be disposed of annually in future make the need for sustainable recycling methods ever more pressing. In collaboration with the Fraunhofer Research Institute and the "Rohstoffwende Bayern" research project, ROTH International has been further evolving existing techniques.

Thanks to its recycling expertise, ROTH International also has the skills and capacity for recycling other materials in an environmentally friendly manner:

We are also happy to process other objects for the secondary raw materials market.

We have no problems stripping down objects made of CFRP / GRP and recycling them in a sustainable manner.
