Carbon Concrete Composite Team Wins President of Germany’s German Future Prize

Carbon Concrete Composite Team Wins President of Germany’s German Future Prize

Toho Tenax congratulates the carbon concrete composite researchers Prof. Manfred Curbach, Prof. Chokri Cherif and Prof. Peter Offermann from TU Dresden on the awarding of the President of Germany’s German Future Prize for their research into carbon concrete composite (C³ project).

Toho Tenax says that The Federal President's Award for Technology and Innovation is one of the most important scientific prizes in Germany and was handed over by Germany's president Joachim Gauck.

According to Toho Tenax, carbon concrete composite will revolutionise the construction industry and enable resource-friendly, slender construction in the future. The first projects have already been realised successfully with Tenax carbon fibres. Toho Tenax says it is one of the world’s market leaders for carbon fibres and the leading provider for construction in Germany and it looks forward to a future in which safe, slender and intelligent construction go hand in hand. Toho Tenax is proud to be able to contribute to this revolutionary technology with our high-performance carbon fibre Tenax.

Carbon concrete composite is an economical and resource-friendly alternative to standard reinforced concrete: as carbon does not rust, carbon concrete composite structures have a much longer life expectancy. The maintenance required during this time is practically zero. What’s more, walls made from carbon concrete composite can be much thinner, i.e. a slimmer construction is possible. Up to 80% of the concrete volume could be saved in this way in the future.
