Scientists developing bio-based carbon fibres being "showered with requests" for sustainable version of the wonder material
Sector: Energy Solutions
Scientists are working on carbon fibres made from biomaterials instead of fossil fuels in an attempt to create a version that does not generate carbon emissions.
Bio-based carbon fibres could be used to build lightweight electric cars with greater battery range, according to senior scientist Dr Erik Frank.
