NREL #scientist Gregg Beckham is producing #renewable #carbon fiber involving extracting #sugars from #biomass, converting those sugars to an intermediate #chemical, and then converting that chemical to #acrylonitrile, which is the chemical building block for carbon fiber. The work is part of the Renewable Carbon fiber Consortium (RCFC). (Photo by Dennis Schroeder / NREL)
