SIXTH SYMPOSIUM ON CIRCULAR ECONOMY AND URBAN MINING
10TH ANNIVERSARY / CAPRI, ITALY / 18-20 MAY 2022

Workshop: Sustainability of thermoset materials

SESSION D04 / Glass Room / 19 May 2022 / 9:00 - 10:00
Workshop: Sustainability of thermoset materials
Chair / Presidente: Julio Vidal (ES)

The workshop will expose the different approaches that are being followed for the treatment of thermosets at their end of life currently, while providing the new solutions that are being explored to optimize the maximum value that can be obtained from the thermoset materials and avoid downgrading. The idea of the workshop is to shoe the technological advancements and the current TRL of the technologies that are being developed in the field of thermoset waste management and recovery of raw materials.
