Project Summary

This project uses the industry’s carbon fiber composite waste stream as a feedstock for clean-tech, recycling industry to use low-cost (mostly mechanical processing methods) to produce a consistent and high-quality new product ready to enter the construction market. The new product will be used as an additive to concrete used by departments of transportation, state counties/municipalities, and private industry for applications such as pavements, sidewalks, bridge decks, loading/manufacturing floors, Jersey barriers and beyond. The focus will be to experimentally optimize the carbon fiber additives to design a concrete with the durability and mechanical properties to long last the environmental and other service loads in the cold climate region.
