FORMAX Establishes New Recycling Division

FORMAX, a leading global manufacturer of speciality composite reinforcements, has launched a new recycling initiative at its UK production facility.

Thanks to the  creation of a dedicated Recycling Division and the installation of two  bespoke machines, FORMAX is now able to reprocess the majority of its  glass and carbon fibre waste.The recycled materials  are suitable for a variety of non-structural and structural applications across a range of industries, and a number of FORMAX’s customers are  already manufacturing components using products from the division with  great success.“Last year we generated over 600  tonnes of glass waste so recycling is clearly very high on our agenda,  both from a position of environmental responsibility, but also from a  commercial standpoint.The market for recycled materials is a growing  sector with a number of significant opportunities and the creation of  our new Recycling Division allows us to devote considerable time and  resource into optimizing products for these processes” comments Oliver  Wessely, Managing Director of FORMAX.
