In the last few years the use of carbon fibers has already proven many times that its unique properties revolutionize entire industries and set new impulses. These fibers are not only attractive due to their special look, but also because of their functional properties. As a result, they can be used to target different problems and needs across a wide range of technologies, such as lightweight construction, corrosion resistance and also sustainability of materials.
We at TENOWO produce nonwovens from ” virgin carbon fibers” as well as from waste and cut fibers from the carbon fiber processing industries, in other words from recycled carbon fibers (rCF).
The possible applications of our carbon fiber nonwovens are enormously diverse due to their outstanding properties. Potential applications for rCF nonwovens are fiber reinforced components (applications for example in automotive/ construction/ transportation/ aerospace/ sports) and heat or electromagnetic shielding. Other applications: Sporting goods, mechanical engineering, boat construction, mold manufacturing, commercial vehicles, consumer electronics, medical devices and construction renovation.
Promix Solutions will be presenting solutions from its core competencies of mixing, foaming and cooling in plastics processing at FAKUMA. In addition to classic static mixing technology, visitors can learn how Promix physical foam systems can save on raw material costs in extrusion processes, improve foam quality and reduce carbon emissions. Petrochemicals Hydrogen Carbon Fiber
For manufacturers of light foams such as XPS, XPP, XPE, XPET, Promix will exhibit how the P1 cooling mixer technology can be used to achieve a better cell structure and thus improve mechanical properties or reduce foam density.
The company will emphasise a mixing nozzle specially developed for PET preform production – the use of which prevents local acetaldehyde concentrations exceeding the legal limit value and AA blockers can be saved. Furthermore, an improved colour distribution and better mixing of rPET can be achieved. This favours a higher rPET content and thus contributes to the circular economy. The PET mixing nozzle is supplied ready for connection and installed in place of the existing injection moulding nozzle.
Internal combustion-based passenger vehicle sales “almost certainly passed their peak in 2017,” according to the Long-Term Electric Vehicle Outlook report from BloombergNEF. Petrochemicals Hydrogen Carbon Fiber
Make no mistake: The future of mobility is electric. Yes, there are still some pockets of resistance, waxing nostalgic for the “chrome-wheeled, fuel-injected” rides of yore, but that is best experienced through the rear-view mirror.
As the cost of batteries and electric vehicles as a whole declines and the driving range per charge expands, electric vehicles (EVs) will displace the internal combustion-powered beast at a dizzying pace.
In fact, the process has already begun, according to BloombergNEF’s sixth annual Long-Term Electric Vehicle Outlook (EVO). Internal combustion-based passenger vehicle sales “almost certainly passed their peak in 2017 and are now in permanent decline,” states the report.
The current EVO marks the “first major increase” in BloombergNEF’s EV adoption outlook in the last five years. It was commissioned by the non-profit European Federation for Transport and Environment, which lobbies for sustainable mobility options in Europe.
The full report is available for download to BNEF clients, but anyone willing to register can access a fairly comprehensive summary here. In the meantime, here are some highlights from the summary.

The operating rate of spandex downstream plants started falling from mid-Aug, resulting into slower sales of spandex. Some spandex companies saw slightly mounting inventory. Petrochemicals Hydrogen Carbon Fiber
Price of spandex turned to shiver at high level after continued surging in Jan-Jul. Some market players began to doubt whether price of spandex will start falling? How will supply and demand change on spandex market?
After some units in Zhuji Huahai started operation, the spandex capacity rose by 20kt/year to 871.5kt. Huafong Chongqing’s 50kt/year unit is expected to gradually commission operation from late-Aug. New spandex units are expected to start production intensively. The existing units may continue running at high capacity. Spandex production is expected to have upward space in end-Q3 and Q4.
