Pearl Members Takes Third Place in Aero Montréal Recycling Competition

Mohamed Khalil, Soumaya Benzennou (doctoral students) and Majid Rasouli (Postdoctoral) representing PEARL received the third prize at final round of Aéro Montréal Competition, granted by Bombardier Inc. and Avianor Inc., that was held on October 1st.
The competition, Aerospace of Tomorrow: Towards a 100% Recyclable Aircraft, was to encourage young engineers to propose a solution for recycling 100% of an end-of-life aircraft.
PEARL’s proposal suggested a solution for recycling the end-of-life composite materials and electronics waste using the Microwave Assisted Pyrolysis technology, which could greatly facilitate moving forward to produce clean and high quality products including precious metals like gold, silver and platinum from aerospace scrap.
