The Circular Economy and Energy Transition requires automotive, aerospace and transport markets to develop and launch more sustainable products that are easier to recycle and that use more recycled materials. ‚Äč

Get familiar with our Sustainable Mobility program

Brightlands Materials Center develops circular and lightweight solutions for mobility markets based on thermoplastic composite materials and technologies. We focus on technologies and materials for structural, lightweight and freeform components for mobility markets and on recycling of thermoplastic composites and re-application of recycled materials.

Our Continuous Fiber Additive Manufacturing (composite 3D printing) development is aimed at manufacturing thermoplastic composite structural components with high mechanical strength-to-weight ratio in complex shapes. Unique design optimalization and parts integration allows for additional weight savings.

Our unique and proprietary Recycling Technology for thermoplastic composite materials keeps the good mechanical properties of composites by retaining fiber length. We develop recycled composite materials (e.g. Long Fiber Thermoplastics) and do application development to re-use these recycled materials in high-end applications.

Brightlands Materials Center offers services to the industry both through bilateral contract research and through industry collaborations in (subsidized) consortia.
