The agreement highlights two main objectives:

  • the establishment of a Sector Group under EuCIA umbrella, integrated into EuPC, which will operate as a recycling and sustainability platform for the composites industry; and
  • fostering cooperation on recycling and sustainability at the European level, while enforcing the common voice and position of composites industry on environmental issues.

”The cooperation agreement supports the European composites industry on recycling by having one voice," says Fons Harbers, Chairman of ECRC, a consortium founded in 2003 by composites industry members to develop solutions for composites recycling.

"It brings together industry players in the composites value chain under a common platform to define and decide on common strategies for the industry while highlighting our commitment to sustainability of this sector.”
