Unidirectional basalt fiber
tissue is laminated to both sides of a lightweight wood core.
Compared with traditional cable materials, a carbon-nanotube fiber
could carry more current without heating up and do so over longer distances, says Howard Schmidt, director of the carbon-nanotechnology lab at Rice University.
The share of recycled paper should increase from 48% in 2001 to 50% of total fiber
consumption by 2010 as many of China's non-wood pulp mills close.

has also been associated with lower risk of other cancers such as breast cancer.
As apparent from the SEM micrograph, the peeling of the surface is remarkably shifted to the fiber
side as the fatigue of the tube progresses.
Among researchers who want to study fiber
technology on their laboratory benches, there's been a revival in interest in Formhals' technique.
Most composites here use wood fiber
, rarely over 50% loading, and there is only limited use of agricultural fibers
This article examines the specific research, development, and technology transfers needed to meet future recycled fiber
While a user is engineering fiber
