Evonik Named to Institute for Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation

Evonik Corporation, Parsippany, US, was recently named by US President Barack Obama as a key partner of the Advanced Composites Manufacturing Innovation Institute (IACMI), a $250 million public-private partnership of academia, federal and state government, and companies seeking to advance the commercialisation of novel material sciences and composites solutions to the automotive, wind energy and compressed natural gas tank industries.

 

Led by the University of Tennessee, the IACMI reflects a 70 million USD commitment from the US Department of Energy and 189 million USD from IACMI’s partners. IACMI is the fifth named institute of President Obama’s National Network for Manufacturing Innovation.

 

“Evonik is proud and excited to have an opportunity to work with technology leaders across academia and industry to bring composite solutions to life,” said Dr. Matthias Kottenhahn, head of Evonik High Performance Polymers business line. “Evonik’s participation in IACMI is right in our sweet spot, as we have a strategy of offering the world commercially viable ideas on how to utilise resources more efficiently. Our involvement complements other investments we’ve made, including a Composites Project House which is working to develop new materials and innovative light-weighting system solutions.”
