Objective 1 Actual state of art concerning composite scraps, EoL components and automotive shredder residues (ASR). Objective 2 Technical evaluation of technologies allowing composite materials and ASR recovery. To investigate processes suitable for using composite scraps coming from industrial production, EoL (or artificially aged) components and useful fractions coming from ASR for the processing of new composite products. Objective 3 Practical applicability of one or more technologies for ASR and composite materials recovery. To investigate the characteristics (mechanical behaviour and microstructure) of products coming from recycling process
