What is FRP ?  (source: WikipediA)                                                                                                                                                              Fibre-reinforced plastic (FRP) (also fibre-reinforced polymer) is a composite material made of a polymer matrix reinforced with fibres. The fibres are usually glass, carbon, aramid, or basalt. The polymer is usually an epoxy, vinylester or polyester thermosetting plastic; phenol formaldehyde resins are still in use. FRPs are commonly used in the aerospace, automotive, marine, and construction industries.

With a competitive and practical recycling solution composites have a great future !                                                                           Global volumes of FRPs are rapidly increasing and mainly replacing metals and wood. The challenging drawback of FRPs is that yet till today there has been no feasible recycling solution existing for them.                                                                                                           The invention of Conenor is a simple and low cost thermo-mechanical process to produce homogenous reinforced material utilizing   FRP-waste (without grinding into powder) for extruded and moulded thermoplastic composites in single- and/or multilayer structures.
