ELG Carbon Fibre Ltd says that it will be exhibiting for the first time at the Automotive World Show, taking place in Tokyo from 17-19 January.  

The company will be introducing its Carbiso range of recycled carbon fiber products for high volume, lightweighting solutions in automotive applications. ELG will exhibit within the ‘Automotive Lightweight Technologies Expo’, a specialist zone focussed on the promotion of weight reduction to improve fuel efficiency and performance.

ELG Carbon Fibre is working with a number of European OEM’s and Tier 1 manufacturers and supplies at industrial volumes. The Japanese market therefore holds much potential. ‘ELG views its attendance at this world class event as an important step to increasing the company’s exposure and continued expansion into the Japanese automotive market,’ the compant said in a press release.

‘There is a huge requirement for economical, compact, lightweight passenger cars, including hybrid vehicles, in Japan,’ added Frazer Barnes, MD of ELG Carbon Fibre. ‘ELG Carbon Fibre can supply high volumes of carbon fibre products and deliver the latest high rate processing technologies to satisfy this demand in the most cost efficient method possible.’
