At the end of their useful life, most composite materials are incinerated or landfilled, which is a pity considering that they are high-performance materials whose raw materials are not economical. Composites are very difficult to recycle since they do not melt, so their recycling to date is limited to mechanical recycling (grinding and introducing them as a filler for the manufacture of new composites). Using chemical recycling (pyrolysis and solvolysis) it is possible to separate the fibres from the matrix getting pyrolytic oils and monomers that, after purification steps, can be used in the chemical industry (solvents) and to synthesize new polymers (monomers).
