The development and rollout of electrical transport are taking place at such a fast rate that current (inter)national legislation, standards and requirements are unable to keep pace. As a result, at present, the frameworks for regulations and legislation in no way cover all the safety and end-of-life aspects of electric vehicles. As a consequence, the Dutch EV sector finds itself in a complex playing field, that is also subject to massive changes.
Composite materials are used in a wide range of applications such as automotive, aerospace and renewableenergy industries. But they have not been properly recycled, due to their inherent nature ofheterogeneity, in particular for the thermoset-based polymer composites. The current and future wastemanagement and environmental legislations require all engineering materials to be properly recoveredand recycled, from end-of-life (EOL) products such as automobiles, wind turbines and aircrafts.
