The RADIACAM project is developing novel technologies which addresses a pressing need for the recovery and reuse of the valuable metals, fibres, fabrics and foams that make up mattresses and automotive components, once these products have come to the end of their useful life. In line with the European End of Life Vehicles (ELV) Directive, this technology is intended to provide the UK automotive industry with a market-leading capability. The RADIACAM technology will also allow a higher proportion of the seven million mattresses currently disposed of in the UK every year to be diverted from landfill, in line with the European Union Landfill Directive.

The partners working on the project include the University of Leeds, Harrison Spinks, JBS Fibre Recovery, C-Tech Innovation and the Nonwovens Innovation & Research Institute.
