This series of three virtual workshops organised in the frame of the Cradle-ALP project (Cradle to cradle, circular design and circular substitutions for linear products in industrial manufacturing processes in the Alpine Space) welcomes enterprises, academics, and public stakeholders from the composites industry to delve into crucial issues and drivers shaping the future of the industry in the Alpine region. The objective: to set up a Transformation Roadmap for the composites industry to reduce landfill disposal of composites to 10 % of total waste by 2035, aligning with the EU Landfill Directive.

The workshops will be held in English.

Why should you participate? 

The workshops provide a unique opportunity to share your expertise with other companies and jointly develop a roadmap for a circular economy. Outcomes of the roadmap will be tested by SMEs of the alpine region being actively supported by the project consortium.

This exclusive exploration is crafted for SMEs, large corporations, academics, public authorities, and researchers across diverse composite industries, including aeronautics, automotive, nautical, and sports & outdoors equipment. We will collect input from participants throughout the workshop to shape a set of recommendation to answer to the current value-recovery gaps and challenges (Collecting, Sorting, recycling) for waste generated by the polymer-based composite industries.
