MAI Carbon

Projects of the Leading-Edge Cluster MAI Carbon

In order to make carbon fiber reinforced plastics usable in large-scale production, in everyday life and in the society as a whole, MAI Carbon has set high standards in its objectives. For this purpose different areas need to be considered. As well as innovations in the field of production systems to process fibers and produce carbon fiber components, the layout and calculation of the component parts also play a decisive role in this case. Furthermore questions regarding sustainability and recycling must be examined in order to present sustainable solutions. In addition to these research and development topics it should be considered how knowledge can be transmitted and how the society can be involved in the development of carbon fiber. In order to reach these ambitious goals, a series of research and development projects are promoted in the cluster, which are assigned to four areas.
