I've been wondering whether all this carbon stuff we're building now would recycle. Makes me feel better about the bikes etc.

So, how EXACTLY do they recycle that?
Burn out the epoxy leaving the carbon fiber or what?
It all reads so "green", but really?

Inquiring minds want to know.

I'm pretty curious about this too. I can't see ground or milled carbon fiber/resin being useful for much other than filler. If they used a thermoplastic resin, maybe there are more options?

I definitely support the environmentally conscious approach, but also wonder what the recycling process consists of and how effective it is.

Gosh, it would seem if she's obsolete for racing, someone could have made a nice cruising boat out of her....
