Zhang Project Press Release

A JCATI funded recycling technology was recently highlighted in a Pittsburgh Post Gazette article. Dr. Jinwen Zhang, Professor of Mechanical and Materials Engineering, along with his industry partner Global Fiberglass Solutions have developed a chemical method that breaks down carbon fiber reinforced plastics. This technology provides a more efficient and less toxic method to break down the fibers for recycling. Dr. Zhang was awarded JCATI funds in 2015 and 2016 for this project. For more information on composite recycling, visit the  Dr. Zhang's and Global Fiberglass Solutions websites.
