Composites Recycling Technology Wins Award

19 March 2004

Dupont’s Composite Recycle Technology, and its joint programme with Denso Corp of Japan to test its viability, has won the 2004 environmental award for New Technology in Materials and Processes from the Society of Plastics Engineers' Environmental Division.

The Composite Recycle Technology is a closed-loop polyamide (PA) recycling process which is reported to be able to convert parts made of glass- or mineral-filled PA 6 or 66 into first-use quality material in a way that is economically viable and environmentally responsible.

Since DuPont and Denso announced a joint development programme to test the viability of this technology by converting used automotive radiator end tanks into new radiator end tanks, Denso has completed material and in-use component testing. Denso says the results indicate this technology can be one of the most effective recycling technologies for increasing the recycle ratio of End of Life Vehicles (ELV) in the future.
