Carbon fibre is not green
written by John, November 10, 2010
Carbon fibre is strong and light but it certainly is not green. It is environmentally expensive to manufacture, and disposal of used materials (i.e. recycling) is not practical.

The only benefit from its use is to reduce weight in a vehicle. It is greener to reduce fuel consumption by reducing the power output of the engine.
