Russia-based Holding Company Composite (HCC) is to build a 1,700 tonne carbon fibre plant in the Republic of Tatarstan, Russia, which could eventually grow to 10,000 tonnes or more. The new carbon fibre plant was announced at JEC Europe in Paris, France, last month.
HCC already produces Alabuga-Fibre material at a newly-constructed facility in Alabuga, Tatarstan southeast of Moscow, and according to the company, already has attracted attention from global partners.
The plant will be mainly export-oriented, said Dan Pichler, HCC business development director. The initial line reportedly will produce 1,700 tonnes a year, and will eventually be optimised to produce around 2,000 tonnes, said HCC.
