Lightweighting: The Digest’s 2018 Multi-Slide Guide to the Renewable Carbon Fiber Consortium

February 27, 2018 |

What’s the latest with carbon fiber?

The US Department of Energy is supporting a project to develop and demonstrate an acrylonitrile (bio-ACN) production process from biomass-derived sugars at ≤ $1/lb. Additionally, the team led by NREL’s Adam Bratis aims to demonstrate suitability of bio-ACN for the production of carbon fiber relative to conventional practices .

The hope is a route for affordable, high quality renewable carbon fiber, with an initial focus on automotive lightweighting, and later on wider potential applications.

The team gave this illuminating overview of the project’s progress and promise at the DOE Project Peer Review meetings.
