GreenLight Project, to develop lignin-based carbon fibres, has entered benchmarking and testing phase
The GreenLight project, who’s objective is to develop green and cost-efficient carbon fibres from lignin, a by-product of paper pulp mills, has now entered the benchmarking and testing phase of
GreenLight has successfully produced lignin-based carbon fibres at the laboratory scale and we are now in the process of benchmarking their physical properties against commercially available
grades of carbon fibre. The concept is to use the fibre as reinforcement for thermoset and thermoplastic materials and then manufacture test pieces for evaluation. The plan is to complete this initial analysis by the end of 2018.
