The Global Composites Sustainability Coalition

Composites Australia is a founding member of the Global Composites Sustainability Coalition which is a forum for international collaboration in areas related to (but not limited to) cost-effective collection and reprocessing of waste to enable circularity; the development of new chemistries that will contribute to more sustainable materials; the development of standards relating to environmental footprint of composites; the development of toolsets and data for design of composites.

As societal demand for low environmental impact solutions for composites will continue to grow, and associated policy and legislation are likely to develop in parallel.  Through the coalition, along with the American Composites Manufacturers Association (ACMA), Composites UK, the European Composites Industry Association (EuCIA) and a number of the others, we are collaborating internationally to share knowledge and progress common areas.

Composites Australia report ‘Steps to sustainability in composites’ will be released in March 2022.
