Key Research AreasAs a leading composite materials research center, the KIST Jeonbuk Institutepioneers industrial development and the advancement of national scientific technology through its R&D efforts in developing original technology concerning cutting-edge composite materials with high performance and high value and carbon-based composite materials. Such efforts are expected to help replace imported resources and create new industries.
Functional Composite Materials Research CenterWith the goal of developing original technologies concerning high quality cutting-edge functional composite materials and commercializing them, the research center focuses on understanding the micro-phenomena of composite materials and controlling/applying them.
Carbon Composite Materials
The center focuses on the production, fibrosis, high-performance creation and high function creation of carbon fiber, carbon nanotubes and graphene as well as high molecular composite material research using these materials. It also plays an important role in ensuring environment-friendly production of carbon fiber composite materials and resolving recycling-related issues through R&D efforts in recycling and repairing.
Composite Materials Applications Research CenterThe center aims to develop composite materials with multiple functions surpassing the properties of existing materials and develop ultra-lightweight structural composite materials that can be applied to the fields of aerospace, automotive and construction. It also focuses on gaining a basic understanding of the physical and chemical properties of materials and developing new composite materials through inducing property-enhancing mechanisms.

NewspaperKIST Transfers CFRP Recycling Technology to Catackh (2017.11.23)
On November 23, during the 2nd Public Technology Transfer Roadshow at Sejong University in Seoul, the Korea Institute of Science and Technology (KIST) and Catackh signed an agreement on transferring new technology for recycling carbon fiber reinforced plastic (CFRP)*. A down payment of KRW 1.5 billion was agreed upon, with a licensing fee of 3%. The two organizations also agreed to collaborate on further research into CFRP recycling practices.
*CFRP: Lighter than aluminum but harder than steel, CFRP is used in everything from sports equipment to automobiles to ocean vessels to air/spacecraft.
Disposal of used CFRP is conventionally done via burial or incineration. Unfortunately, CFRP is toxic and non-biodegradable, causing serious environmental damage. That is why Dr. Goh Munju of the Carbon Composite Materials Research Center at the KIST Jeonbuk Institute of Advanced Composite Materials recently led a team in developing an ecofriendly alternative for reclaiming CFRP at low cost.
This innovative recycling technology runs on water and an inexpensive additive, requiring very little energy. It can restore 95% of used CFRP back to high-quality, making it both ecofriendly and economical. It can also be used to recycle epoxy, making it potentially applicable for industrial products like epoxy paints and circuit boards.
By transferring this technology, KIST and Catackh aim to corner the CFRP recycling market.
