Recycling the “impossible”

For many years now carbon fiber has been referred to as the raw material of the future. Due to its high ratio between elasticity and strength, excellent aerodynamic properties, resistance to corrosion and chemical impact, easy molding it is often irreplaceable in space, aviation, automotive and medical industries.

However, one of the greatest shortcomings of carbon monoxide is its utilization and recycling. About 30% of carbon fiber used in industry is discarded as postproduction waste. Recycling and disposal of such waste is very costly and often impossible.  Often, such waste is simply shredded and used, for example, for pavements.

The team of engineers and designers, named LABEL/BREED, has set itself a goal of making something beautiful and practical from waste carbon fiber. The result – chairs, soon to appear in trade, that will be made of 96% of waste carbon fiber.
