Project results


REPOXYBLE will have two main results, answering specific needs.


Trying to respond to the main current trends in the transport sector, REPOXYBLE aims to develop new bio-based, lightweight, sustainable and multifunctional epoxy-based composites for the aeronautics and automotive study cases.




Epoxy resins dominate the composites market due to their chemical resistance and excellent thermomechanical properties. However, they are impractical to recycling is they cannot be dissolved or reshaped unless using large amounts of energy.

A sustainable approach that allows closed loop recycling is needed to meet environmental demands.



New TRL5 DCLE systems that feature a full closed loop recycling, demonstrating:

  • Up to 50-80% of biobased materials
  • Up to 85% of recovered monomers as raw materials
  • Manufactured parts from up to 100% recycled components with up to less 10% property loss
  • Retrieving up to 85% of unharmed inorganic additives




Lightweighting and integrating new functionalities beyond structural performance will save additional costs, enable higher autonomy and fuel economies.

Novel production techniques to reduce energy consumption during composites manufacturing providing a cost-effective procedure.


  • Up to 75% cost saving for recycled carbon fibres
  • Up to 20% reduction in CO2 emissions measured by LCA 3 integrated functionalities:
  • Graphene foils for thermal management
  • Laser assisted circuits to reduce wiring weight
  • Graphene self-sensing printed sensors to enhance part durability

One data driven energy efficient manufacturing approach that will reduce energy up to 50%.
