ACMA focus on recycling

The American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA) is to hold its first ever Composites Recycling Conference from April 10-12, 2018 in Knoxville, Tennessee.

The conference will bring together experts from around the world to highlight the most relevant technology and business developments which are turning composites recycling into a reality.

The conference will bring together experts from around the world to highlight the most relevant technology and business developments which are turning composites recycling into a reality.

“Over the past few years, our industry has made great strides in composites recycling, including greater awareness, product development and industry collaboration,” says Tom Dobbins, president and CEO of ACMA. “This conference will allow professionals in our industry to get the full picture of what’s happening in composites recycling today and a glimpse of what’s next in terms of opportunities to reduce costs and develop recycled composite products.”

ACMA is helping lead the way in composites recycling. Last month, the association and IACMI, the Composites Institute officially embarked on a project to develop a robust and scalable methodology that could result in a real business case for composites recycling. The conference will feature an update on that project, as well as sessions on recycling best practices, the state of the art in composite recycling technology and standards for composites recycling. It will also provide opportunities to see the latest recycled composite products.

ACMA is accepting submissions for presentations for the conference until November 17. Presentations can be either on a technical research paper, or can be based on case studies, best practices, trends, etc.  Requested topics include:

  • Incentives for recycling and waste reduction – cost/benefits/regulation.
  • Avoiding scrap – waste reduction techniques and processes.
  • Recycling technology.
  • Standards for recycled composite materials.
  • Recycled composite products.

All submissions will be reviewed by industry representatives and the chosen speakers will be notified by mid-December. Questions regarding abstracts can be submitted to Christie McCabe. Registration for the conference will open early in December 2017. Visit www.acmanet.org/recycling for additional information, including the conference agenda, exhibitor and sponsorship information.
