Editorial: Innovations in Composites for Technical Textiles

published in Issue 88, 1st quarter 2012  

A highlight of the European JEC composites show, JEC Europe 2012, held in Paris, France, during March 27-29, 2012, was the 2012 JEC Innovation Awards ceremony, where a total of 13 companies were rewarded for their innovations in the field of composites. Many of the awards were given to companies which had developed products or processes involving carbon fibres or technical fabrics. Among the innovations featured in this report are: the FibreCycle carbon fibre recycling project by Sigmatex; an all-carbon primary vehicle structure by Axon Automotive; an all-carbon composite structure for an electric vehicle battery pack module (BPM) by LG Hausys; a braid bicycle frame concept by Munich Composites; a new biocomposite called Wood K Plus by Kompetenzzentrum Holz; the G128 wind turbine modular blade by Gamesa; and the world's longest stress ribbon bridge developed by Acciona Infraestructuras.
