Oxford Advanced Surfaces made the headlines on the business pages of the Oxford Mail newspaper last week after speaking about its recycled carbon fibre feasibility study.
The company got in touch with journalist Kieran Davey to tell him about how it has been awarded an Innovate UK grant to conduct a feasibility study – in conjunction with the University of Manchester – to investigate how a new breed of composites can potentially be created for automotive applications using recycled carbon fibre.
CEO, Philip Spinks, said: “Kieran was immediately interested in the strides we are making as an Oxfordshire SME and, in particular, how we are playing our part in working towards a solution for a global challenge – that of vehicle lightweighting and the development of affordable composites that can be used for automotive and other applications.”
The Oxford Mail, which has a readership of almost 20,000 people in and around Oxford, printed the story as a page lead in its 16 June issue and OAS expects to update the Oxford business community about the progress of its feasibility study progress when it is able to discuss its first set of results and data in the coming months.
