September 23, 2008 - 6:09am

French company Simav is developing a new thermal process, thermolysis, to recycle the carbon fiber contained in composite materials and claims that its process yields a higher-quality recycled fiber than the current one.

“Airbus is testing a prototype of our recycling machine in Toulouse and we plan to install a production-standard machine there late this year or early in 2009,” Simav CEO Ghassan Khouri told AIN.
