CUTTING EDGE, CUTTING ENERGY 

Carbon Nexus, a globally unique, open-access carbon fibre/composite research facility, is open for business and conducting strategic research projects with industry.

Deakin University's $34m facility, located at its Geelong Waurn Ponds Campus, near Melbourne, offers:

  • State-of-the-art research and analysis laboratories.
  • Pilot scale and research carbonisation lines, operated by experienced production staff.
  • A team of capable, energetic researchers dedicated to working with industry to produce high quality carbon fibre, while reducing production costs and speeding 
    up manufacturing processes.

Carbon Nexus understands the needs of the carbon fibre industry. For more than a decade Deakin University researchers have been developing new and improved fibres and carbon composites. This new facility significantly enhances the capacity to deliver real outcomes for industry to capture the enormous market potential of carbon fibre and related composites.

Carbon Nexus is an integral part of the $103m Australian Future Fibres Research and Innovation Centre at Deakin.
