The Port’s composite initiative, the Composite Recycling Technology Center, will be discussed on TVW’s 'Inside Olympia' program on tonight at 7 PM and 10 PM.
One half of the one hour program will delve into Washington State’s overall strategy for composite industry growth with Brian Bonlender from the State’s Department of Commerce.
The other portion of the program will feature the Port’s Director of Business Development, Jennifer States and Mary Kaye Bredeson, the Executive Director of The Center of Excellence for Aerospace and Advanced Manufacturing. Director States and Director Bredeson will discuss what the state is doing to meet the composite education and job training demand. They will also highlight the composite recycling effort and how it will help enable the use of carbon fiber composites in other industry sectors besides aerospace.
The Composite Recycling Technology Center is a joint project of the Port of Port Angeles, the City of Port Angeles, Clallam County and Peninsula College, and also includes significant involvement from critical industry, workforce training and research partners across the US. It will enable commercially competitive recycling of composite waste into feedstock for new products, and support the development and expansion of companies. It offers the opportunity to establish Washington State as a worldwide leader in composite recycling, with Port Angeles at the center of this emerging area.
