We are researching the recycling of carbon fiber composite materials and their application to the aviation field in collaboration with the National University Corporation, Tokai National University Organization Nagoya University (hereinafter referred to as "Nagoya University"). This study was adopted as a theme for fiscal 2023 as a pioneering research program/energy and environmental new technology pioneering research program by the New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO).


 The representative proposer for this study is Nagoya University. We are also working with the Fine Ceramics Center (JFCC) and SUBARU Corporation.


 Carbon fiber composite materials are light and strong, and are widely used in industrial products. Especially in the aircraft field, these materials are used as wall surfaces in passenger cabins and as structural materials to support airframes and wings. Carbon-fiber composites are an essential material because lighter airframes are more effective in reducing fuel-consumption and CO2 emissions.

 On the other hand, many issues remain regarding the application of recycled materials to the aviation field, and further technological development is required.


 We have a track record in delivering carbon fiber composites in the aviation field. In this joint research, we will utilize our experience and aim to commercialize the research results.


 We will continue to contribute to society through our technological capabilities in order to realize a sustainable society, such as by reducing CO2 and effectively using resources.
