EMPHASIZING Project Wins JEC Composites Innovation Award

Tue, 13 February, 2024

The EMPHASIZING project team are delighted to announce that we have won the 2024 JEC Circularity and Sustainability Award at the JEC Composites Innovation Awards.

Each year, JEC awards cutting-edge, creative projects that demonstrate the potential for composite materials. The awards not only promote innovative composite solutions across the world but also encourage those working in composites innovation.

The EMPHASIZING project won the JEC Group 2024 Innovation Award for Circularity and Recycling during a live ceremony on 8 February 2024.

The project has brought together project partners Ford Motor Company, Gestamp, EMS-CHEMIE (Business Unit EMS-GRIVORY), Gen2plank Ltd, Longworth - Sustainable Recycling Technology, Brunel Composites Centre (BCC) and TWI to assess, process and analyse materials from wind turbine blades and automotive and marine parts to create roadmaps for recycling that demonstrate the concept of a circular economy for fabricating automotive end products from upcycled glass fibre materials.

There will now be an awards celebration day at the JEC show on 5 March 2024, where representatives of the composite materials industry will gather in Paris to showcase what composites can offer to sectors ranging from aerospace and marine, and automotive to construction.

The Emphasizing project has received funding from Innovate UK under No 10035094
