Our experience from research and development of advanced technologies has yielded revolutionary products within the field of composites recycling, ballistic protection, and even multipurpose coatings that can defend against pandemics.
Glass to Glass
Glass to Glass Reclamation technology captures glass fiber from end of life composites and converts it to a next generation material. Large wind turbine blades, travel trailers, boat hulls, and other waste streams can be converted into clean, high quality glass fiber that can be economically reincorporated into your next car, boat, or turbine blade.
Ultra-lightweight, flexible, thin, and UV and water resistant, our personnel, vehicle, and glass ballistic material solutions are NIJ certified and used by law enforcement and military everywhere. For more information about Carbon Rivers' material solutions visit CR Nano.
Carbon rivers utilizes the highest quality, pristine graphene nanoflakes in specialty developed multipurpose coatings that offer unparalleled benefits in ultraviolet resistant, scratch resistant, anti-viral, or even friction-reducing applications. Carbon Rivers coating technologies has been tested in the harshest applications, and can even offer beneficial anti-fouling properties in the marine industry.
Carbons Rivers offers a variety of specialty polymer, ceramic, and metallic additives that offer multiple performance benefits depending on the industrial application. Custom master batching and tailored materials selection are available for polymeric and composite materials.
Carbon Rivers is dedicated to sustainable, green circular economies. Instead of incineration, landfill, or aggregate in other materials, Carbon Rivers reclaims glass fiber from a variety of production and end of life waste streams in order to provide clean, high-quality glass fiber. The recovered glass fiber is then either provided to glass manufacturers to be competitive in price and quality to virgin glass mined from silica or upcycled into composite intermediates for a variety of second-generation materials in the automotive, aerospace, marine, or construction industries.
Carbon Rivers started with recycling glass fiber from wind turbine decommissions and repowers, but this is only a fraction of the glass fiber waste stream. Carbon Rivers can provide not only end of life recycle and upcycle processes for turbine blades, but it can also provide glass fiber 3D filament and composite materials that can go back into the next generation of wind turbine blades.
