The American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA) is soliciting abstracts for its first-ever recycling conference, taking place on 10-12 April 2018 in Knoxville, Tennessee, US.

The conference will aim to bring in experts from the US and around the world to highlight the most relevant technology and business developments which are turning composites recycling into a reality.

“Over the past few years, our industry has made great strides in composites recycling, including greater awareness, product development and industry collaboration,” says Tom Dobbins, President & CEO of ACMA. “This conference will allow professionals in our industry to discover the full picture of what’s happening in composites recycling today and get a glimpse at what’s next, including opportunities to reduce costs and develop recycled composite products.”

Last month, ACMA and IACMI-The Composites Institute officially began a project to develop a robust and scalable methodology that could result in a real business case for composites recycling. The conference will feature an update on this project, as well as sessions on recycling best practices, the state of the art in composite recycling technology and standards for composites recycling. The conference will also feature opportunities to see the latest recycled composite products.

ACMA is accepting submissions for presentations for the conference until 17 November. Presentations can be either on a technical research paper, or can be a presentation based on case studies, best practices, trends, etc. Requested topics include:

  • Incentive for recycling and waste reduction – cost/benefits/regulation;
  • Avoiding scrap – waste reduction techniques and processes;
  • Recycling technology;
  • Standards for recycled composite materials;
  • Recycled composite products.

All submissions will be reviewed by industry representatives and the chosen speakers will be notified by mid-December. Registration for the conference will open early December 2017.
