Company Summary

Our modular patented carbon fiber recycling process scales rapidly to address a gap in the composites supply chain. It's like a carbon fiber washing machine inside a shipping container. We deploy these units close to the source of composites scrap via our Hardware-as-a-Service subscription platform. Vartega’s carbon fiber and specialty thermoplastics are used in sporting goods, additive manufacturing, and vehicle lightweighting.
