Sandwich spread

Round-up

With an estimated 80,000 tonnes of composite sandwich panels used each year in the UK, the disposal of end-of-life panels has significant implications for the environment. In recognition of the fact that composite panels are not being recycled at the same rate as other steel products, the Steel Construction Institute has begun work on a project to investigate the barriers to recycling composite sandwich panels. The project, attracting support from companies including Corus Colours, the MCRMA and Corus Panels and Profiles, will endeavour to understand and resolve the issue of sustainability in relation to the product and will involve all members of the supply chain.
