Oxide fibre reinforced ceramics (O-CMC) are strategic materials for the European manufacturing, energy and aerospace industries. They are used in next-generation aircraft engines, stationary gas turbines, power-to-X processes with concentrated solar power CSP, in the chemical industry or even as charge carriers for high-temperature processes. Currently, such high-end O-CMC components and their individual components - the ceramic fibres as reinforcing components - are the key to this class of materials. Oxide ceramic reinforcement fibres have so far been produced mainly in the USA. The aim is for the European O-CMC component industry to become independent of fibre manufacturers from non-EU countries.
The project covers the entire process chain, from fibre development, weaving, O-CMC production, coupons and demonstrators for each end-user application, to testing Ox fibres and O-CMC components in relevant environments.
