PHYre an innovative technology
PHYre is an innovative recycling process that enables the recycling of production scraps and end-of-life (EoL) Carbon Fiber Reinforced Polymers from aerospace, automobile, renewable energies and other industries. Based on solvolysis, this technology has many advantages when compared to current recycling solution such as full product recyclability, lower carbon footprint and recovered of high quality carbon fibers. The process is compatible with a large range of thermoplastic and thermoset resins.
The key features of our solvolysis process are patented.
Our operating conditions are optimal to minimize process cost.
Our process allow to produce a high quality recycled carbon fibers without degradation of their mechanical properties.
Lower carbon footprint
Thanks to the reuse of some of the chemicals used and the low energy required, PHYre has lower environmental impact than other technologies.
Besides the fibers, we can recover as well the oligomers present in the matrix as a process by-product.
Our process can suit to a large range of the product and different matrix. PHYre can treat up to 90 % of composite materials.
The conditions used in the PHYre process allow to :
Keep 98 %
of Tensile Strength
Keep the same strain at break as virgin fibers
Preserve the diameter of fibers
Recycled carbon fiber products
After treatment recycled carbon fibers can either be sold directly or reprocessed to obtain a semi-product. We propose different kind of recycled carbon fiber products to suit to our customers' needs.
Long recycled carbon fibers
Woven recycled fabrics
Short recycled carbon fibers
