EXHUME at Composite Show, NEC

The EXHUME team are exhibiting at the Composite Show, hosted by the  Advanced Engineering Show on 4-5 November at the NEC.

EXHUME is a collaborative project funded by EPSRC involving the universities of Birmingham, Manchester, Cranfield and Exeter. The project is developing novel and resource efficient composite recycling re-manufacturing processes with industry.

Visit stand G134 to talk to experts about reducing and recycling composite waste. Find out about potential recycling technologies and ways in which you can get involved in current and potential future composite recycling projects. The stand will have examples of re-manufactured products and videos of innovative recycling methods and machinery.

Dr Gary Leeke, University of Birmingham,  commented:  “We are really looking forward to exhibiting at the show and having the opportunity to engage with leading organisations from the composite industry.

“The issue of composite waste is increasing rapidly in both the UK and internationally. Our research has addressed the technical and environmental issues and established re-manufacturing protocols at the factory level. Academics need to work collaboratively with industry and government to drive this forward so that we can recycle composite materials.”

“We are eager to establish further networks within the composite industry to share our findings and to gain valuable insights into our current and future work. We are keen to extend our portfolio of re-manufactured products to exemplify the plausibility of using recycled materials”.
