Carbon Fibres & Advanced High Performance Composites Cluster

Home The Project
Carbon Fibres & Advanced High Performance Composites Cluster


Five EC project networkswhich will form this cluster, relate to the sustainable production and
recycling of carbon fibres (CF) and carbon fibre composites. CARBOPREC, FIBRALSPEC and
NEWSPEC investigate CF precursor development where cheaper CF and independence from
international monopolies are some of the main aims. EUCARBON aims at independence from non-
European suppliers. REFORM deals with the recycling of CF composites.

Objectives and initiatives

The main objective of the CF Tech cluster and business network collaborations across borders and
sectoral boundaries is to support through European Strategic Cluster Partnerships the development
of emerging carbon fibre industries, helping SMEs to contribute to the emergence of new value
chains and to take a leading position globally.
