Manufacturing of Carbon Fiber Precursors Containing High Loadings of Plant-Based Lignin

Lignin/acrylic polymer spinning solutions to yield notable mechanical performance


In 2019, Forbes reported the European Union’s (EUs) proposal to regulate a 37.5% drop in carbon fuel emissions by passenger vehicles in 2030! 92 miles per US gallon of fuel was set as a 2030 guideline for automotive manufactures. This technology addresses the sustainable production of carbon fiber that will serve as frames for cars and passenger vans. The use of carbon fiber is expected to allow for vehicle compliance to the aggressive, fuel emission standards of EU legislative bodies and the United State Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Carbon fiber is 4.6 times lighter than steel- thus making carbon fiber an ideal construction material for lighter, more fuel-efficient passenger vehicles. The CF industry will continue to grow in terms
