Efficient sustainability of composite parts with reLFT technology; in view of the European Green Deal

  • Dr. Ir. Ali Rezaei
  • Brightlands Materials Center

Sustainability is becoming more and more important in industrial products.  In view of the upcoming European Green Deal, the existing Legislation (End-of-Life Vehicles Directive 2005/64/EC) will force car manufacturers to construct cars with at least 85 % recyclable mass fraction. Therefore, producing high-quality and high-performance recycled materials is of utmost interest in the modern automotive industry.
This presentation focuses on the concept of reLFT (recycled Long Fiber Thermoplastic) technology and describes its high potential in serving the near-future automotive industry. The reLFT material technology uniquely uses post-industrial or post-consumer continuous fiber-reinforced thermoplastic waste and turns them into a high-quality engineering material that can feed parts and components made using molding and over-molding methods.
