New recycling technologies for highly-hilled polymer composites

In subproject E “New recycling technologies for highly-hilled polymer composites”, we create processes that allow objects to be recycled or reused at the end of their life cycle. Beside material cycles, direct applications such as the production of pressing tools from plastic and lunar regolith simulant are investigated. Another important topic is to embed the cycles in the material selection from subproject C. It is necessary to select materials that meet the requirements of space travel on the one hand and that can be recycled and used for 3D printing processes as many times as possible on the other hand.
