The SPARTA funding project reached the milestones set in the Mid-term

The aviation sector is undergoing a period of transition towards a more sustainable, efficient, and safer mobility. The CO2 emissions reduction is one of the main challenges of the Clean Aviation programme. The SPARTA project is aligned with the strategic challenges of the next generation of aircraft by using recyclable composite materials, thus reducing the carbon footprint. With the aim at demonstrating the level of recyclability of materials, the SPARTA project has developed a novel recycling technology based on thermoplastic composite delamination that allows up to 80% recycled material utilisation for secondary value-added applications.

The SPARTA funding project, framed in the Airframe ITD of the CS2 programme, has reached the milestones set by the time being of its execution period in the Mid-term M22, obtaining unidirectional thermoplastic composite tapes derived from the scrapping recycling process. In a second step, chop material will be laid up automatically and consolidated to obtain a whole recycled composite part. This fact will bring about a cost-efficient alternative to the traditional waste disposal routes, namely landfill and incineration which have unfavourable environmental impacts. SPARTA process represents a more environmental solution in terms of recovery and recycling.
