Oracle and Boeing are collaborating to recycle 7,000 pounds of carbon fiber from Oracle’s USA-71 boat. They say this is “a first-of-its-kind effort for what will likely be the largest carbon structure ever recycled,” according to Boeing’s press release.
While carbon fiber has become a popular material used for all kinds of things, bikes, cars, boats, it’s not easy to recycle. Various researchers have been working on it. Now Ellison’s boat will be part of Boeing’s research.
