Nikolas Ringas is a current PhD research student at the School of Engineering, The University of Edinbugh, under the supervision of Dr Yuner Huang and Prof Dilum Fernando.

The aim of this project is to develop manufacturing upcycling technologies to re-use prepreg scrap and determine the resultant mechanical properties. This project mitigates the environmental impact of conventional composite manufacturing processes reducing air emissions and energy consumption. It also contributes towards a sustainable economy reducing the waste disposal fees paid by commercial companies and recovering commercial value from the composite scrap. 

Research Themes: 

  • Structural Engineering
Manufacturing process of recycled composite laminates
