FISIPE opens Cogeneration & Pilot Plant for carbon fibre production
20
Dec '10
On the past 10th of December, FISIPE inaugurated the two most recent large investments made in its plant – the Cogeneration Plant and the Pilot Plant for the Production of Carbon Fibre.

For the inauguration ceremony of these two new structures, FISIPE invited the Minister of Economy, Innovation and Development, Vieira da Silva, the Secretary of State of Energy and Innovation, Carlos Zorrinho, and about 60 personalities.

FISIPE is a producer of acrylic fibres with plant at Lavradio, Portugal, operating since 1976. The company was set up in 1973 as a result of a joint-venture between CUF and the Japanese Group Mitsubishi and is quoted in the Lisbon Stock Exchange since 1986. FISIPE, from a company producing basically standard textile fibre has gradually become a producer of special acrylic fibres, namely pre-dyed fibres, functional fibres and fibres for technical applications.

This was in fact our strategic option – to invest, through innovation and a systematic research, in new applications for the acrylic fibre as well as in new requirements in the current segments.
