Irish research project harvesting sustainable carbon fibre

Maurice CollinsGround-breaking technology developed at the University of Limerick could produce cheaper and more sustainable carbon fibre, which could lead to cars of the future being manufactured from paper waste.

Researchers based at the university’s Bernal Institute have produced carbon fibre from sustainable bio-resources, which has been used to produce car wing mirrors and sections for wind turbine blades, paving the way towards a more sustainable future for materials used in the automotive and wind energy sectors.
