"Carbon Fiber Remanufacturing LLC (CFR-KS) since 2011 has been in the business of engineering and producing high performance and competitively priced carbon fiber reinforced nonwoven composite materials which have been carded, cross lapped, and needled. CFR-KS composite formulations utilize either reclaimed Carbon Fiber (rCF) or virgin Carbon Fiber (vCF).
Over the past six years, we have worked directly with Carbon Fiber Recycling (CFR-TN) by providing them with CF reclamation testing trials with a wide range of CF reinforced composite waste streams including composite materials and products from aerospace to pressure vessels, both cured parts and uncured and off-spec prepregs.
The progress CFR-TN has made over these years of development in the resulting quality of the rCF and in cost efficiencies of their technology and system processes has been nothing less than spectacular.
CFR-KS has carefully followed the developments of 15 or so composite recycling operations in Europe, Asia, and North America. CFR-TN is a clear standout in this critically important emerging industry to meet the demands for future recycling of autos, aircraft, spacecraft, marine vessels, wind power generation, building materials, recreation/sports products, and electronics which increasingly and speedily are converting to carbon fiber reinforced composites for its great strength and light-weighting and 100% recyclable on a repeating life cycle basis.
Manufacturing industries of every kind are rushing to utilize CF reinforced composite materials without a clear plan to process their products and structures at the end of their life cycle. CFR-TN is clearly the leading technology to provide each of those industries with a proven solution to avoid already bulging landfills around the world."
