REPOXYBLE reaches half its lifespan: a week full of activities

Activities are in full swing as we are halfway through REPOXYBLE   Last week was a very important one for us at REPOXYBLE, with four days of meetings, events, and networking.   We started the 4th of June with our internal meeting for the 18th month of the project: we reached the middle of our […]

Novel polymers for structural composites: the SUSMATx workshop

Workshop “Sustainable matrices for Structural Composites: processing and mechanical performance” The end of life of thermoset matrices used in most current structural composites is problematic, because of their irreversible nature: technical fibers, such as carbon fibers with a huge embedded energy, cannot be recovered, and repurposing of components is not feasible because of the impossibility […]

Composites recycling: which method fits the best for REPOXYBLE?

Composites recycling: which method fits the best for REPOXYBLE? REPOXYBLE aims to develop a new generation of multifunctional, safe and sustainable by design epoxy-based composites. Affordable recycling, both economically and environmentally, is a crucial aspect to make these composites competitive on the market, and capable of replace the fossil-based ones currently used. But which recycling […]

Performance, sustainability and safety: REPOXYBLE’s requirements

Design requirements for performance, sustainability and safety: REPOXYBLE’s compilation REPOXYBLE completed the compilation of design requirements for performance, sustainability and safety to inform the development of materials and product solutions of the project. The aim has been to select the building blocks leading to the epoxy resin system, and identifying criteria to pursue a Safe […]

SSbD in practice: REPOXYBLE & EU projects experiences

Safe and Sustainable by Design in practice: experiences from REPOXYBLE and other EU projects REPOXYBLE has been during the NanoInnovation Conference & Exhibition 2023 workshop Improving materials development by Safe and Sustainable by Design approaches, a joint event of the EU projects ASINA, SABYDOMA, SAbyNA, SbD4Nano and REPOXYBLE.   Safety and sustainability of chemicals and […]

REPOXYBLE started!

REPOXYBLE: new EU project on bio-based plastics for automotive and aerospace just started The new Horizon Europe project REPOXYBLE (Depolymerizable bio-based multifunctional closed loop recyclable epoxy systems for energy efficient structures) started on January 18th at Brussels and will last until May 2026. The project aims to develop a new class of high-performance advanced materials […]
