Teijin to launch ‘sustainable’ carbon fibre

 Japanese fibre manufacturer Teijin is to begin production of a new variant of carbon fibre made from sustainable, ISCC Plus-certified raw materials.

Branded as Tenax, the fibre will be primarily made from acrylonitrile (AN), a synthetic monomer generated from waste and residue from biomass-derived products or recycled raw materials that have received certification from the International Sustainability and Carbon Certification system.
