Recycling is key to make the planet a better place to be. Production of virgin glass fiber is very energy demanding and Ucomposites have with an advanced technological angle on recycling, to the benefit of the environment, made it possible to develop same quality as the virgin alternatives.
Ucomposites is aligned with UN Global Compact Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and are contributing to reach the goals, particularly for following SDGs:
Ucomposites work in line with EU thematic strategy for prevention and recycling waste but will also contribute to diverting waste from landfill which is an important element in EU policy on improving the use of resources and reducing environmental impacts of waste management.
Ucomposites A/S has carried out a Life Cycle Assessment (LCA) to document the carbon footprint of recycled materials in this project as well as other environmental impacts.
Ucomposites use 60 kWh for processing of 1 ton glass fiber
vs. virgin glass fiber manufacturing which demands 8.055 kWh
