This article reveals the plans of Cytec Industries to build a carbon fibre plant in the U.S. which could become operational by 2009. According to Steve Speak, president of Cytec Engineered Materials, once the technical, product and process definitions were completed, the company would prepare a detailed design and final capital cost estimate, early in 2007. The location of this unit is yet to be determined, but the company operates ten plants in North America and Europe.
