ELG Carbon Fibre has achieved AS/EN9100 quality management system certification from Bureau Veritas for the ‘Recovery of carbon fibre from manufacturing waste and end of life products’ and the ‘Manufacture of recycled carbon fibre materials and products’.
According to ELG, the AS/EN9100 series is designed to meet the rigorous and stringent demands of the aviation and aerospace industry. It aims to provide a harmonised global standard for all manufacturers and offer customers greater reassurance in terms of product performance and reliability.
ELG says it chose this prestigious quality standard to ensure it was able to meet the requirements of the aerospace industry, one of the largest users of carbon fibre and therefore one of the industries where recycling is most important.
Frazer Barnes, Managing Director of ELG Carbon Fibre, comments, “Achieving this certification is a significant milestone in terms of our ongoing expansion. In an extremely competitive marketplace, manufacturers and suppliers view quality management as a fundamental driving force. We work hard to maintain standards throughout our organisation and securing AS/EN9100 is testimony to this.”
ELG claims it has developed a unique series of products that offer significant cost benefits without compromising the mechanical properties that make carbon fibre attractive for applications where lightweight is important. In excess of 600 tonnes of recycled carbon fibre products were delivered to the market during 2015.
