HELACS faces the ending of its second year by accomplishing an important milestone: the celebration of its first onsite General Assembly, framed in Month 18 of project lifetime. Centexbel hosted the meeting and received the visit of the Consortium members to its facilities in Kortrijk (Belgium). HELACS experimented an intense and enriching working day, in which each partner presented to the Consortium and Topic Manager (AIRBUS) own project progress under their correspondent leading tasks.
In that context, HELACS made an overview of the acctions achieved along this period of execution, in terms of managment, dissemination, and technical stages such as the carbon composites posibilities within the large-scale composite structures recycling process, and the developments made regarding the dismantling technologies. PLATA, AITIIP, Centexbel and Gen 2 Carbon offered a detailed report, with the aim of establishing a precise roadmap of the incoming strategies to be exploited during the last year of the project.
After the lectures panel, the Consortium had the opportunity of visiting Centexbel facilities, and learn about Centexbel team’s work, equipment and technological capabilities.
