BIO-FIBRE REINFORCED COMPOSITES Tadeusz Majewski Department of Industrial and Mechanical Engineering
Every year end-of life vehicles in the Community generate between 8 and 9 million tonnes of waste, which must be managed correctly. DERICITIVE 2000/53/EC OF THE EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT AND OF THE COUNCIL on end-of life vehicles This Directive should cover vehicles and end-of live vehicles, including their components and materials, as well as spare and replacement parts, without prejudice to safe standards, air emission and noise control. 12. The recycling of all plastics from end-of life vehicles should be continuously improved. The Commission is currently examining the environmental impacts of PVC. The Commission will, on the basis of this work, make proposals as appropriate as to the use of PVC including considerations for vehicles.
The legislation provides for the creation of collection schemes where consumers return their used e-waste free of charge. The objective of these schemes is to increase the recycling and/or re-use of such products. It also requires heavy metals such as lead, mercury, cadmium, and hexavalent chromium and flame retardants such as polybrominated biphenyls (PBB) or polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDE) to be substituted by safer alternatives.
Article L0053-EN Reuse and recovery 2(a) no later than 1 January 2006, for all end-of life vehicles, the reuse and recovery shall be increased to a minimum of 85 % by an average weight per vehicle and year. Within the same time limit the reuse and recycling shall be increased to a minimum of 80 % by an average weight per vehicle and year; for vehicles produced before 1 January 1980, Member States may lay down lower targets, but not lower than 75 % for reuse and recovery and not lower than 70 % for reuse and recycling. 2(b) no later than 1 January 2015, for all end-of life vehicles, the reuse and recovery shall be increased to a minimum of 95 % by an average weight per vehicle and year. Within the same time limit, the re-use and recycling shall be increased to a minimum of 85 % by an average weight per vehicle and year.

Raw materials as cellulose fibers (abaca, jute, hemp, sisal, kenaf, cotton), soft or hard wood fibers are widely used in an industry. They have very interesting field of applications because of their promising properties. These materials need further investigation to improve their properties and increase their applications. Some of their drawbacks can be improved in further research. The parts from the composite materials are produced by injection moulding or extrusion. Automotive industry is interested in new materials, because according to new regulations cars should be partially decomposable or recyclable.
Domestic application of WPC
Automotive applications Mercedes-Benz Class S with environmental certificate Components made from different bio fibre reinforced composites

PROPERTIES OF PARTS MADE OF WPC: Small weight, Small use of energy during production, Good mechanical properties, Good acoustic isolation, Renewable materials. Nomenclature WPC- Woof Fiber Composite PP575 – Polypropylen PAN – Polyacrylnitril PET - Polyethylenterephthalat W - Softwood Cordenka – Man made cellulose fiber %wt –percentage weight of fiber Wood Plastic Composites (WPC) is widely used in automotive and domestic industry. With addition of natural fibers the composite materials obtain better properties, they are cheaper and friendly for the environment. Cellulose fibers - abaca, jute, hemp, sisal, kenaf, cotton, soft or hard wood fibers The parts from the composite materials are produced by injection moulding or extrusion. Natural fibers, thanks to their lightweight, the strength and the low cost may replace artificial/mineral (glass or coal) fillers in many parts.
