The 1st Open Workshop 2023 of EuReComp has been successfully completed in Dresden, Germany !
On 20/04/2023, we had the opportunity to gather with our partners and participants - both physically and online - in the beautiful facilities of Technische Universität Dresden. Together, we shared and discussed the project's advancements in sustainable methods for recycling and reuse of composite materials in the aeronautics and wind energy sectors. We also had the chance to visit the facilities of Elbe Flugzeugwerke GmbH as part of the workshop's activities.
Panelists representing industrial and academic stakeholders presented the latest advances in the field of composite materials and how they can be used to create a more sustainable future through the following presentations:
A.SPIRE & Process4Planet Partnership by Bruno Mesquita - A. SPIRE
EoL Composites Market Analysis by Thomas Parissis & Evaggelos Koulis – STRATAGEM
R6 strategy within EuReComp by Philipp Johst – HTWK
TransRotation - reuse of rotor blades in architecture by Ina-Marie Orawiec - OX2architekten GMBH
NDT and spectroscopic techniques for EoL composites by David Castro – AIMEN
Solvolysis Technologies within EuReComp by Paul Schulz & Robert Kupfer – TUD
EuReComp e-learning platform by Thomas Wagenknecht – KUZ
Apart from the presentations, a tour and live demonstrations at the Institute of Lightweight Engineering and Polymer Technology took place as well discovering the latest advancements in various composite materials experiments.
A round table discussion closed the event providing a forum for exchanging ideas between presenters and the audience.
It was truly inspiring to see the level of innovation, technology, and science that was presented during the workshop. We heard about groundbreaking developments in the field of composite materials, and how they can be used to create a more sustainable future for the aerospace and wind energy industries.
We want to give a big shout-out to everyone who participated in this event - your contributions were invaluable! We are excited to continue building on these successes and pushing the boundaries of what's possible in composite materials.
