King 5 News will be running a short segment on the Port of Port Angeles’ proposed Composites Recycling Technology Center (CRTC) and Peninsula College’s Advanced Manufacturing Composites Program this evening at 6:30 pm.
Filmed this morning, the segment includes an interview with the Port’s Director of Business Development, Jennifer States and a shot of the Port of Port Angeles’s Multi-Tenant Industrial Building at the Airport Industrial Park, the proposed location for CRTC. Also included in the footage are some Peninsula College classroom shots and an interview with instructor Norm Nelson.
The proposed CRTC is envisioned to serve dual purposes by providing a manufacturing maker space where carbon fiber composite scraps can be repurposed into new products, and providing workforce development through hands-on training in composite manufacturing and recycling technologies.
“The Composite Recycling Technology Center will provide the opportunity to recycle valuable material into new products, creating new jobs and business opportunities for Port Angeles,” said Director States. “We have broad support from the private sector and public sector, with key industry partners such as Boeing, Intellectual Ventures, Adherent Technologies and more.”
Peninsula College’s Advanced Manufacturing Composites Program trains individuals for careers in the aerospace, marine, or recreational equipment industries both on the peninsula and elsewhere. Students learn how to fabricate and repair composite structures in a hands-on environment from instructors who work in the field. Students can choose how much training they want from “stackable” short-term certificates, to a one year certificate, to an AAS degree.
