Assessing efforts to reduce the environmental impacts of carbon fibre composites in vehicles
Övrigt konferensbidrag, 2021

This presentation will be about the life cycle assessment of different technology development routes for decreasing the environmental impacts of carbon fibre composites in vehicles. Three main routes were assessed: The use of bio-based raw materials for the fibre production, the use of microwave technology in fibre production, and the recycling of the composites and recovery of the fibres after use. The goal was to assess which of these routes that are more promising for making the environmental impacts of carbon fibre composites in vehicles environmentally competitive to glass fibre composites, what aspects that influence this comparison, and what remaining hot spots might be.
