Circular economy and thermoset composites sustainability.
Programme: Misiones grandes empresas (Ministerio de ciencia, innovación y Universidades; CDTI)
Duration: 38 months, November 2020 – December 2023
Partners: Consentino; Suez; Acciona; Kimitec group; Industrias Omar, Aerotecnic, Reciclalia
EOCENE is an inflection point for three different points. Firstly, the obtention of all components of a composite from renewable sources. Secondly, the development of sustainable technologies for recycling processes and the revalorization of the residues generated. In this sense, EOCENE will develop, validate and characterize new resins coming from bioresources (Epoxy, Vinyl ester and Polyester) though enzymatic and chemical approaches.
EOCENE will test the newly developed materials in a relevant environment and will boost the recyclability of the thermoset composites developed for construction, aeronautics and architectural surfaces.
