Re: Hawaiian 460 diversion into MDY (Sand Island, Midway Atoll)

Re: OH-LVB AY A319 gets 99.2% recycled during scrapping

There was about 15 tons of aluminium in the fuselage that was melted with other aluminium into ingots. Those will be sold to Europe and used for example in car gearboxes. Aircraft aluminium is not pure aluminium so its not used in soda cans for example. Only 290 kg of waste was send to landfill. So...

Re: OH-LVB AY A319 gets 99.2% recycled during scrapping

I wonder how much of that 99% recycling is true recycling and how much is look-good stuff.
Primary structure of A320 is composites - aramid fibre (AFRP), glass fibre (GFRP) and carbon fibre (CFRP) reinforced plastics.
With thermoset matrix, those alone would be a challenge for a meaningful recycling.
