Shaping Solutions: Carbon Revolution Leading the Way Towards Local CF Recycling

May 12, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am

Carbon Revolution, a leading Australian carbon fibre automotive component manufacturer, is proactively seeking ways to improve sustainable outcomes in the industry. Carbon Revolution recently sponsored a research project focusing on what would be required to grow a carbon fibre (CF) recycling industry in Australia.

A team of Executive MBA students from Monash University engaged broadly across Government, Research Institutions and Local and International carbon fibre manufacturers and recyclers to understand the challenge, and develop a suggested roadmap for CF recycling.

Join this exclusive AFCG-hosted discussion to understand more about Carbon Revolution’s current environmental strategic focus, how the company is working to help address sector-wide challenges, and the key findings of the EMBA research team.

This is the fourth event in our ongoing Shaping Solutions series to promote a broader discussion about the role we can all play in driving towards a sustainable advanced fibre industry.
