SGL Automotive Carbon Fibers (SGL ACF)—a joint venture of SGL Group and the BMW Group ( earlier post )—officially opened its new carbon fiber manufacturing plant in Moses Lake, WA. The new facility is strategic for the manufacture of ultra light-weight carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP) for use in the new BMW i vehicles ( earlier post ). All electricity needed for the production of carbon fibers will come from local hydropower.
