Energy Efficient, Incrementally Scalable, Continuous Basalt Fiber Manufacturing Process
Project Innovation + Advantages:
If successful, this project will exponentially improve the technology to manufacture and scale CBF while reducing its direct energy inputs.
Producing low-cost, high-quality CBF at scale will place the U.S. in the technological lead for CBF production and secure the economic and energy benefits of this position.
Mass production of low-cost, high-performance, energy-saving, CBF would enable it to compete at lower cost with standard building materials, such as glass fiber, carbon fiber, and steel.
