Making composite materials more sustainable
The industry of the future must be sustainable. The key challenges for the composite materials sector are improving eco-design, diversifying sources of materials and developing circular economy policies.
Atlantic France is a pioneering region for innovative and collaborative projects aiming to make composite materials more sustainable. This is, for example, the case for the 100% recyclable turbine blade developed by the research centre IRT Jules Verne and the boat made from carbon fibre remains which the skipper Armel Tripon is working on with Airbus.
