Researchers Use Recycled Carbon Fiber to Improve Permeable Pavement

Wednesday, March 14, 2018

Pullman, Wash. — A Washington State University research team is solving a high-tech waste problem while addressing the environmental challenge of stormwater runoff. The researchers have shown they can greatly strengthen permeable pavements by adding waste carbon fiber composite material. Their recycling method, described in the March issue of the Journal of Materials in Civil Engineering, doesn’t require using much energy or chemicals — a critical factor for recycling waste materials.
