ROLE IN THE PROJECT
In the DeremCo project Rivierasca brings its expertise in mechanical and thermochemical recycling and several reprocessing technologies.
|Open mold casting (dry and wet)||Hybrid 3D printing and milling|
|Wrapping & plastering (hand lay-up)||BMC/SMC|
|Closed mold pressing||Centrifugal casting|
|Continuous cold extrusion (patented)||Filament winding|
|Hybrid pultrusion||Hybrid RTM|
It collaborates with strategy 1 (mechanical recycling) demo cases and is leader of strategy 2 (thermochemical recycling) demo case 2.5 focusing on “recycled glass fibers mat”.
