Voith Composites, Composites 4.0 leader and production centre of carbon fibre-reinforced composites in the Voith Group, has announced its intent to partner with V-Carbon, an advanced materials technology company that delivers sustainable carbon fibre material systems.

The partnership will establish and deliver industry leading innovation to achieve the first sustainable and closed-loop solution for CFRP materials for H2 systems.

V-Carbon is an advanced materials technology company, developing the first fully integrated carbon fibre circular economy for use in the aerospace, automotive, wind energy and industrial sectors.

Voith Composites is a manufacturer of tanks for hydrogen storage and has recently brought to market the Carbon4Tank – an optimal solution for hydrogen storage with the Voith Plug & Drive H2 Storage System - providing Type 4 high-pressure hydrogen CFRP tanks based on 700 bar technology for heavy-duty commercial vehicles.

The partnership with V-Carbon will enable Voith Composites to obtain quality recycled carbon fibre and highly-aligned structural materials for a second life in H2 tank applications, and provide V-Carbon with high-performance CFRP waste from H2 tank production and end-of-life tanks.

“We are delighted to sign a Letter of Intent to partner with V-Carbon,” says Anna Pointner, CEO at Voith Composites. “This partnership will help us reach our shared goals in sustainability by enabling a recycling capacity for H2 tanks, which is a core objective at Voith Composites. We look forward to a long and prosperous partnership that will help us on our mission to protect our planet.”

Damian Cessario of V-Carbon added: “We’re looking to partner with Voith Composites because they are an industry leader in the field of H2 storage systems for heavy-duty vehicles. We look forward to confirming the terms of our agreement and working together for years to come.”
