By now, everyone knows that the world is obsessed with carbon fiber.
But just how much of the world’s oceans, lakes and rivers are covered in this durable and highly durable material?
A new study has found that it’s worth an estimated $2 trillion to the global economy, with the vast majority of this value being generated by just the U.S.A. The U.K. is the leading producer, and the U,Japan, France and Germany are second.
The World Economic Forum has ranked the U as the most sustainable economy in the world.
But it’s not just the rich that get into the game, according to a new study by the University of Sheffield.
In fact, according the U., the number of people using carbon fiber in their daily lives could triple within the next 10 years.
The study, published in the journal BioScience, found that carbon fiber is being used in the global supply chain to build everything from homes to ships to power grids, and it’s the same material used to make steel.
The researchers found that the most prevalent use of carbon fiber was in the construction of boats and other watercraft.
They also found that more than 10% of the global carbon fiber industry is focused on building ships.
“We found that many parts of the industry, including shipbuilding, could be made of carbon fibre, with some parts being used more than once,” says senior author Dr. Peter Hogg.
“This is a great example of how a material that is typically used for building buildings is being applied to a variety of different sectors of the economy.”
Dr. Hogg says that the study is a significant step in the development of carbon fibers as a sustainable material.
“In our view, this is a step in our research programme that’s already well advanced,” he said.
“It’s one of the biggest, if not the biggest study of its kind to date on this topic.”
The U.N. agency, the Uneventful Use of Carbon Fibers, recently released its first report on carbon fiber, highlighting that carbon fibers were the primary catalyst for the growth of the biofuel industry.
The report said that carbon is the cheapest material available to the world to process, as it’s cheap to process and can be recycled, so there is no environmental impact.
The new study is part of a global trend of increased awareness of carbon’s potential as a renewable resource, which is one reason why U.A.’s project is so important, Hogg said.”[It] will help the U to understand the economics of carbon, which are likely to have an impact on its decision-making in the future,” he added.
Hogg says the research is an important step in understanding the economics and sustainability of carbon.
“As the world becomes more aware of carbon and its potential, it’s an issue that we need to think about,” he explained.
“If we don’t have the best information, we’re not going to make decisions.”
The study comes after another recent announcement by the UEA, which said that more carbon fiber could be used to build a car, aircraft and even a skyscraper.
