Cobat Compositi, the first Italian supply chain for composite materials management

Limit waste, recover new raw materials and energy, and reduce landfilling to zero. This is the mission of Cobat Composites which, born at the end of 2021, is now looming as the first Italian supply chain for the management of the end of life of composite materials, confirming the vocation to search for cutting-edge solutions for the ‘circular’ management of an ever wider range of products, typical of Cobat, as well as of the Innovatec Group. Cobat Compositi is, in fact, the Italian voluntary consortium for the correct collection, treatment and recovery of end-of-life products, processing and production waste made of composite material, mainly consisting of glass and carbon fiber.

Cobat Compositi’s mission is to make all the players in the supply chain protagonists of the circular economy (producers, importers, users, waste holders, treatment and recovery plants), allowing them to contribute to sustainable development. Cobat Compositi offers companies integrated services specifically designed for the needs and characteristics of the sectors to which they belong, such as wind, nautical, automotive, aerospace and construction.. Finally, the consortium is also able to provide management services for other materials associated with the disposal of composites, environmental remediation, 360-degree environmental consultancy and training courses for any need and requirement of the customer.

These activities guarantee management in accordance with the criteria of the circular economy and in compliance with the highest environmental standards, in full compliance with current legislation. Cobat Compositi’s customers are mainly represented by: owners and managers of wind farms; shipyards; managers of ports and airports; automotive industry; construction sector and anyone who produces, through their professional activity, waste and / or scraps of glass and carbon fiber processing. The consortium is open to the participation of all the players in the supply chain, i.e. producers of glass and carbon fiber goods, collection operators, waste producers and final treatment and recovery plants.
