Gen 2 Carbon will continue to develop long recycled carbon fiber for the composites industry.

ELG Carbon Fibre Limited (ECF) has sold its short carbon fiber business to Procotex Corporation SA and renamed its existing composite business, following a management buy out.

According to the company, this business, now called Gen 2 Carbon, will continue to develop long recycled carbon fiber for the composites industry.

Procotex is a recycled fiber specialist whose French subsidiary already supplies carbon fiber, the company said.

‘We are pleased to be able to […] help our customers in the wind energy, automotive, aerospace and electronics industries reduce their environmental footprints by using these sustainable materials that at the same time reduce the waste impact of the composites industry,’ said Frazer Barnes, chairman and CTO of Gen 2 Carbon.
