Proceedings from GLOBAL CARBON FIBER MARKET Conference (JEC Paris 2011) focusing on manufacturing large quantities of high quality, low cost, carbon fibre.

 

Human population has increased ‘3 fold’ over the past 50 years. In India 75% of the population is under 30 years. Our planet has a fi nite capacity; We must change our entire energy structure, decarbonising the world economy - introducing wind energy, nuclear power and low ‘mass’ transport. A 20th century defi nition of an advanced nation has been its ability to refine and manufacture materials - aluminium, polymers and nuclear.

 

Key to composites is Carbon fibre. The Carbon fibre sector has shown recent growth of 25% of CAGR and the world will consume ~ 43,000 T/yr Carbon fibre in 2010. By 2020 we will need ~ 340,000 T/yr. Most Carbon fibre is manufactured from PAN - a wasteful process. This proceedings discuss about how to manufacture large quantities of high quality, low cost, carbon fibres.

  • Models and experiments show key scale transitions for carbon fi ber structure and mechanical properties in composites
  • Below 100 nm, experimentally measured properties approaching theoretical upper limits are already being reported
  • Above 1 mm, carbon fi bers are tested and modeled with statistical approaches
  • Improving carbon fi ber mechanical properties demands careful consideration of experimental and theoretical details over wide length scales.
