Industrialization of the composites infusion moulding process
MetadataShow full item record
The Conference Of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow last year considered how we might limit global warming driving climate change. The light-weighting of transport structures and systems that is possible using fibre-reinforced polymer-matrix composites can make a significant contribution to the reduction of use of (either fossil or renewable) fuels. The wind (and other renewable energy technologies in due course) turbine industry is heavily dependent on composite technologies for large arrays, with one recent turbine design having a rotor diameter of 236 m (Vestas V236-15.0 MW™). The composites industry should seek alignment with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG): 8 Decent Work and Economic Growth, 9 Industry Innovation and Infrastructure, and 12 Sustainable Consumption and Production.
