The sustainability working group of AVK (Federation of Reinforced Plastics) has published a report regarding the sustainability of fibre-reinforced plastics.

This report illustrates the characteristics of fibre-reinforced plastics during the entire product lifecycle by analysing four practical examples with regard to their ecological and economical characteristics as well as the social context. The report also describes current opportunities opened up by utilising fibre-reinforced plastics.

In addition, AVK has entered into a partnership with Zajons Zerkleinerungs and acquired the right to exploit the label for the CompoCycle take-back and recycling system. AVK say that this offers an economically and ecologically feasible method of utilising production waste for members, interested companies in the GRP market segment and the public. This report is available for download at the link below.
