Connora enables Zero Landfill Manufacturing and end of life solutions for the composites industry. Through our patented Recyclamine (TM) Technology, Connora converts composite manufacturing waste (i.e. carbon fiber) into high value performance materials, and helps manufacturers solve waste disposal problems, while lowering cost of goods for composites products.
Primary Application Area: Materials, Chemical
Technology Development Status: Ready to Market
FIGURES OF MERIT
Value Proposition: Connora’s Recyclamine Technology enables the unprecedented recycling and reclamation of high value materials (carbon fiber, precious metals, plastics) from both post-industrial and post-consumer composite waste, including e-waste. Recyclamine has enormous market potential in industries where hundreds of thousands of tons of manufacturing and end-of-life waste are generated annually; including automotive, aerospace, electronics (PCB), wind energy, marine, sporting goods, and consumer apparel. Based on the current market value of reclaimed carbon fiber and copper, the ability to reclaim and reuse high value materials from composites waste has the potential for significant cost savings to manufacturers of composites. Additionally, the creation of a secondary market for reclaimed composite materials also has significant market potential.
