PhD in Reuse and Recycling of Thermoplastic Composite Waste

University of Warwick

Qualification Type: PhD
Location: Coventry
Funding for: UK Students
Funding amount: £15,609 for 3.5 Years
Hours: Full Time
Placed On: 23rd June 2022
Closes: 23rd September 2022

Project Overview

The introduction of a Circular Economy has become increasingly important over recent years, driven by growing recognition of the need to tackle rising resource consumption and waste production. The drive towards zero-waste particularly affects the future of the Composites Industry as until now most manufacturing waste or final composite parts end up at landfill at the end of their life-time.

This project will address the reuse of manufacturing waste of thermoplastic composites in order to increase resource efficiency and avoid landfill. The project will develop viable process routes to reuse manufacturing waste streams from so-called organosheets or unidirectional thermoplastic tape into applications like automotive components. The project will investigate the influence of different recycling option on the processability and properties of such reused/recycled thermoplastics composites.

The research student will carry out the project in the Materials Engineering Centre (MEC) at WMG, and will have opportunities to disseminate the outcomes of this exciting project at international conferences. The student will also collaborate closely with industrial partner Van Wees - UD and Crossply Technology B.V. in the Netherlands, an important manufacturer of UD thermoplastic composite prepregs and the machinery for the manufacturing of such.
